The Social Context of Suicide with Professor Jonathan Scourfield

MedSoc (Wales) would like to invite you to a free informal research seminar.

'How should we study the social context of suicide and self-harm?' 
Professor Jonathan Scourfield 
Monday 23rd June 2014, 12.00 - 2pm, Social of Sciences, Cardiff University CF10 3WT 

This presentation will be framed by debates about the methodology of suicide research which are well-known within sociology. Professor Scourfield will argue for a dual paradigms approach and provide examples with reference to several studies on the social context of suicide: documentary research with coroners' records; interviews and focus groups with young people; and measurement of social media communication. 

Jonathan Scourfield is Professor of Social Work in Cardiff School of Social Sciences and has an extensive publishing portfolio in suicide research, social work and child welfare.
