We’d all like to think we’d be able to help if one of our friends or family members expressed emotional anguish and suicidal thoughts. But, if confronted with that situation, what should we do that would help the most, and what should we avoid doing that might make the situation worse? Dr. Carolyn Coker Ross, an Intergenerational Trauma Expert and Eating Disorder Treatment Specialist shares with us how to best support our loved ones who are seriously struggling with thoughts of suicide, such as talking openly and not being afraid to ask the hard questions. She's an internationally known author, speaker, expert, and pioneer in intergenerational trauma's effect on one's body, brain, and beliefs. Dr. Ross teaches millions of people about eating disorder treatment and substance use disorder at Psychology Today and is the author of three books, the most recent of which is The Food Addiction Recovery Workbook.
