Epidemiology of Youth Suicide in California and the United States
by Michiko Otsuki

Youth suicide is a major public health problem today. The paper analyzed the levels, trends, and other correlates of youth suicide in California using current official statistics. Youth suicide mortality in California increases with the age of the youth, regardless of the gender and ethnicity of the youth. Suicide mortality is higher for males than females among adolescents and young adults in California regardless of ethnicity. Suicide mortality among early teen females has been on a steady increase despite the overall decline in youth suicide mortality for the past two decades. Other correlates of youth suicide, including ethnic variations, prevalence of firearm use, and geographical distribution were discussed. The implications for future research, policies, and suicide prevention programs were discussed. Read this paper

Youth Violence and the Health Professions: Core Competencies for Effective Practice
by Lyndee Knox

Background. Health professionals can make significant contributions to national and local efforts to prevent youth violence through clinical interventions, and through social and political advocacy, but they will require training in order to conduct these activities. Methods. In Spring 2001, a multidisciplinary task force was convened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funded Southern California Center of Academic Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention and the University of Southern California. The task force was a collaborative effort of 8 of the CDC-funded youth violence prevention centers. Its goal was to define the core competencies needed by health professionals to work effectively to prevent youth violence. Results. Three levels of professional competence were identified for health professionals: the generalist level, which should be acquired by all health professionals; the specialist level, which should be obtained by health professionals who work frequently with populations vulnerable to violence; and a third, or scholar level, to be acquired by health professionals who wish to become experts in the care, research and advocacy for effective youth violence prevention. Discussion. The competencies are intended to relevant to a broad range of health and allied health disciplines. Through this report task force members and the Youth Violence Prevention Centers hope to stimulate and inform development of comprehensive training resources on youth violence prevention for health and allied health professionals.

Individualizing Community Assessment through Community-Researcher Collaborations:
The LHA Readiness-to-Change Experience
by Lyndee Knox

In 2003, the Aspen Institute funded a community research team composed of researchers, CBO staff and community members to develop tools to assess social capital that are individualized to reflect the theories and observations of a specific program and/or community. Using a 6-step process, which was heavily informed by participatory action research approaches, a survey was created that consisted of 40-items which assessed the presence/absence of 12 variables believed to be associated with a community’s readiness-to-change. This report includes a detailed description of the process used, a description of the tool, and the findings of their preliminary assessment of the tool’s validity. The group concluded that “individualized community assessment tools” may be a useful alternative to the use of standardized tools for evaluating the effectiveness of programs and in some instances, may even provide more accurate measures of community change as they may capture dimensions and aspects of change that are missed by more traditional tools.
