    COURSE DESCRIPTION

    Suicide is the most common psychological emergency that therapists will encounter, and it is on the rise. For mental health professionals with an active clinical practice, suicide is an occupational hazard that can be both emotionally and practically devastating. Recent research has identified suicide-specific therapies that are effective in treating both suicidal ideation and behavior. Most therapists are not aware of them nor have they been trained in them, so most suicidal clients do not receive these potentially lifesaving treatments.

    This workshop will assist attendees to be able to identify the most important techniques/tools for assessing suicidal risk in clients and then apply effective evidence based therapies to allow them to practice to the standard of care. The workshop will assist therapists to implement state of the art crisis interventions for suicidal clients. The presentation will also introduce and teach strategies to minimize the risk of successful lawsuits or sanctions in clinical practice.

    This presentation meets the standards of education and training to all licensed mental health practitioners. The training will teach them how to implement validated, evidence based treatments meeting the professional standard of care. This workshop is facilitated by a licensed clinical Psychologist, researcher and suicidologist recognized as an international expert in the field of suicidal treatment. This workshop has been approved to meet the requirements by all the professional mental health licensing boards for the required 6 hour mandated training for suicide.
