Kent Associate Professor and MSCFT Program Director, Dr. Laura Frey, co-authored an article that was published in the 2022Dr. L. Frey Decade in Review special issue of the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, a national publication for couple, marriage, and family therapists. The issue is published once every decade. Scholars are invited to review the efficacy of interventions for various topics. Dr. Frey along with her co-authors were invited to review interventions for suicide ideation and behavior for the publication. The review publication provides professionals in the field a benchmark of the work that has been done, as well as an understanding through research of what has been proven to work well, and future areas that need to be studied. 

The article, Review of family-based treatments from 2010 to 2019 for suicidal ideation and behavior, was co-authored by Dr. Frey and Dr. Quintin A. Hunt, Brigham Young University, Dr. Guy Diamond, Drexel University, and Jody M. Russon, Virginia Tech and Drexel University. The article conducted a systemic review to examine peer reviewed publications from 2010 - 2019 that included empirical data, tested an intervention with at least one family component, and included a suicide related outcome measure. The January 2022 Decade in Review Journal of Marital and Family Therapy publication is available online here.
