Thomas Joiner, Ph.D, Professor of Psychology and the Director of the Psychology Clinic at Florida State University, talks with Eating Recovery Center about suicide awareness and prevention. Dr. Joiner is presenting at the 12th Annual ERF Conference on Mental Health: Practical Applications for Multidisciplinary Care. His topic is “Why People Die by Suicide,” in which he will discuss what three factors mark those most at risk of death. These factors are: the feeling of being a burden on loved ones; the sense of isolation; and, perhaps chillingly, the learned ability to hurt oneself.
Dr. Joiner’s work is on the psychology, neurobiology, and treatment of suicidal behavior and related conditions. Author of over 700 peer-reviewed publications, Dr. Joiner is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Suicide & Life-Threatening Behavior, and was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship. He received the Dublin Award for career achievement in suicide research from the American Association of Suicidology, as well as research grants from the National Institute of Mental Health and Department of Defense (DoD). The Lawton Professorship and the Dublin Award are the single highest honors bestowed, respectively, by FSU and the American Association of Suicidology. In 2017, he was named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and in 2019, was given the 2020 James McKeen Cattell Award for lifetime contributions to the area of applied psychological research from the Association for Psychological Science.
