Math has never been at the top of Sophie Topper’s list of favorite things to do. Yet this summer the 9-year-old is eager to get to her math class every morning and she talks nonstop about what she learned all the way home. Why the sudden interest in story problems, math facts and fractions? The fourth-grader is one of a handful of youth participating in UW-Eau Claire’s summer math intervention program. The program pairs kids — typically elementary school students who need extra help with math — with school psychology graduate students to work on math skills.

What specific behaviors or psychological features exist or change over time that make some — but not all — of the young adults who self-injure move toward suicidal thoughts or behaviors?
