Primary and Secondary Approaches to Suicide: Part 2

Presented By:

Theodore P. Beauchaine, PhD
Robert K. Warren Foundation Professor of Psychology
Director of Primary Prevention
Notre Dame Suicide Prevention Initiative

Brooke Ammerman, PhD
Assistant Professor of Psychology
Director of Secondary Prevention
Notre Dame Suicide Prevention Initiative


Theodore Beauchaine is William K. Warren Foundation Professor of Psychology and Co-director of the Notre Dame Suicide Prevention Initiative. His research focuses on biological vulnerabilities to behavioral impulsivity, emotion dysregulation, and self-injurious behavior, and how these vulnerabilities are amplified by environmental adversities (e.g., maltreatment, neighborhood violence, and criminality, marginalization) to increase risk for psychopathology, including self-injury and suicidal behavior. He seeks to develop preventive interventions that reduce such risk by enhancing child, adolescent, and parent behavior and emotion regulation. Dr. Beauchaine is a past recipient of the American Psychological Association Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contributions to Psychology and the American Psychological Association Mid-Career Award for Outstanding Contributions to Benefit Children, Youth, and Families. He served on the National Institute of Mental Health National Advisory Council Workgroup on Tasks and Measures for the Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) and has edited several books, including Child and Adolescent Psychopathology (Wiley) and the Oxford Handbook of Emotion Dysregulation.


Professor Ammerman’s research examines the spectrum of self-injurious thoughts and behaviors, including non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), suicidal ideation, and suicide attempts; she works from the framework that self-injurious thoughts and behaviors serve as an extreme means of emotion regulation. Utilizing a multi-method approach, Professor Ammerman’s research seeks to understand how various intra- and inter- personal factors interact to increase chronic or imminent risk of self-injurious thoughts and behaviors. Professor Ammerman has a particular interest in the interpersonal context in which these thoughts and behaviors occur and how they may overlap with other risk behaviors (e.g. aggression, substance use).
