A Clinician's Guide to Suicide Assessment and Prevention

Live Real-Time Interactive Webinar

Suicide is a leading cause of death in the US and is the 2nd leading cause of death for individuals ages 10-34 (Hedegaard et al, 2021). Suicide and suicidal ideation have become very prevalent in our communities. It’s important to have practitioners who are well versed on how to work with those who are struggling. The training will begin by discussing how to recognize the signs of suicidality and describe how to ask the right questions. Multiple assessment tools will be discussed as well as proper administration. Issues relating to the complexity of the suicidal mind will be covered as well as suicide risk. Effective skills to work with struggling clients will be discussed in-depth including multiple treatment options and how to manage mental health when the client is no longer in crisis.
