Abstract

Suicide by a patient of a psychology intern or psychiatry resident is not uncommon. These trainees often experience significant emotional distress as a result. This national survey of psychology internships and psychiatry residency programs provides information on the nature and extent of suicide-related training and procedures that programs follow in the aftermath of suicide by a patient of a trainee. The levels of activity in both areas are generally less than might be desired, although considerable variability exists.
