The Catholic University of America announced this week that an intervention for suicide developed by one of its psychology professors performed well in a recent meta-analysis.
Professor David Jobes of the school’s psychology department had created the Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality, “a therapeutic framework” for treating suicidal patients, the university said in a May 17 press release.
A recent meta-analysis of clinical trials determined that Jobes’ assessment was “Well Supported for reducing suicidal ideation per Centers for Disease Control criteria.” The framework outperformed alternative interventions in the trials.
Jobes said in a statement on Monday, "We are thrilled with the findings of this meta-analysis."
