Consider the characteristics of offenders at risk for suicide. Think about factors that impact lethality rates, for example, Lethality of Suicide Attempt Rating Scales (LSARS) of offenders.

• Review the course media "Patients, Violence, and Suicide" from The Criminal Mind. Think about suicide risk factors of offenders and consider how those risk factors are addressed by forensic psychology professionals and programs.

• Think about the components of suicide prevention and intervention approaches and programs. Consider the efficacy of these approaches and programs. Reflect on which of these components are important in forensic treatment settings.
