My research program focuses on understanding and preventing suicidal thoughts and behaviors (STBs).

Dr. Witte’s research is broadly concerned with understanding and preventing suicidal behavior. She has a secondary interest in psychopathology (e.g., posttraumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, alcohol use disorders) insofar as it overlaps with suicidal behavior.

Dr. Witte's research is broadly focused on suicidal behavior, with particular interests in the biological, personality, and psychological risk factors that distinguish ideators from attempters, suicide risk assessment, and public perceptions of suicidal behavior.
