The Laboratory for the Treatment of Suicide-Related Ideation and Behavior at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, under the direction of Dr. Marjan G. Holloway, is dedicated to the study, development, and empirical evaluation of psychological interventions for suicidal individuals. The lab's primary emphasis is on secondary and tertiary prevention research which addresses the needs of high-risk groups and individuals. Since suicide remains a leading cause of mortality for military service members and Veterans, many of our studies are conducted with the goal of better understanding suicide in the context of unique military stressors such as posttraumatic stress disorder and deployment. We are currently adapting and empirically evaluating inpatient cognitive behavioral interventions for individuals hospitalized for suicide-related ideation and/or behavior.
The work conducted in this lab includes the following activities:
