Summary
Social and youth workers in New Zealand are not receiving suicide-specific training before they enter the field, nor is there enough organisational support being provided to these practitioners working with clients who disclose suicide ideation. These controversial statements are the outcome of this study, which set out to explore the following research question: what are the emotional reactions, behavioural responses and experiences of practitioners working with young people dislosing suicide ideation? In a country where rates of suicide are extremely high and practitioners are having to deal with disclosures of suicide ideation on a regular basis, this qualitative study recruited four practitioners through purposive and snowball sampling, and used semi-structured interviews as data collection method. Previous literature has found that practitioners are often ill-prepared to deal with suicide-specific issues when entering the workforce, and that organisational support can contribute to more compassionate practitioners in the field. Gaps in the literature provided the scope for this study, and thematic analysis and data triangulation brought to light the following key findings: practitioners, especially those new to the field, experience negative emotional reactions when clients disclose suicide ideation. These emotions affect their practice negatively, and is magnified by the feeling of being unprepared to deal with these disclosures early on in their career. Based on these feelings, this study recommends suicide-specific training in the social work curriculum, as well as better organisational support from agencies employing social and youth workers--Abstract
