Workshop Outcomes & Objectives:
One of the most challenging and stressful tasks clinicians are faced with is navigating the complex nature of suicide. Many clinicians leave their graduate programs, practicums and clinical supervision without formalized training and support on conducting a suicide risk assessment. Despite this lack of training, there is no doubt that every clinician will be faced with the daunting task of assessing a client for risk of suicide.
The content of this training includes an overview of the etiology and phenomenology of suicide and provides participants a framework based on best practices for assessing risk. Participants will leave this workshop with increased confidence and competence in the areas of identifying and eliciting risk factors, warning signs and protective factors of suicide, formulating suicide risk, documenting a suicide risk assessment, and engaging clients in safety planning.
“Suicide is the result of an untimely convergence of multiple psychiatric, psychological, social, environmental, occupational, cultural, medical, academic stressors that severely challenges an individual’s capacity to cope.”
