Details of Suicide Continuing Education

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Preventionthe suicide rate in our country has risen over the last 15 years with half of our states experiencing a 30% increase.

Mental health clinicians are at the forefront of the rising rate of suicides, yet research shows that very few therapists receive training on suicide prevention leaving providers ill-equipped to appropriately respond to a suicidal client.

It is highly likely that clinicians will encounter suicidal clients at some point in their career. It is essential for therapists to be well-educated about suicide in order to reduce risk to their clients and to protect themselves from a liability perspective.

This workshop will cover information on how to identify clients at risk and steps for intervening to promote safety. Aspects of documentation around assessment and intervention will be discussed.

What we know about preventing suicide has rapidly changed and is still evolving. This training will review some of the new research in the field of Suicidology and explore how suicide assessment is changing going forward.

Lastly, we will discuss suicide loss and how it can impact a clinician and the clients we serve. We will explore steps to take to manage the loss of a client and how to support clients who have experienced a death of a loved on to suicide.
