Abstract

The present study demonstrates the safety and effectiveness of an outpatient treatment program for suicidal children and adolescents. Pre- and post-treatment measures of patient behavior and family functioning are presented for 47 adolescents and latency-aged children who received treatment from the Systemic Crisis Intervention Program at the Houston Child Guidance Center. Follow-up was conducted at three and six months and at a point between 12-18 months. All measures indicated significant long-term improvement. Data concerning post-institutional use and suicidal behavior are also presented.
