Are you looking for comprehensive assessment practices for assessing suicide in clients? If so, plan to attend this workshop to learn about comprehensive suicide assessment principles and practices. Evidenced-based screenings and assessments (there is a difference between the two!) will be presented, along with best practices for clinicians to complete a thorough suicide assessment in a conversational, empathetic manner. Learners will develop newfound confidence, skill, and resources to properly assess clients for suicide risk. In addition to assessment, how does a clinician intervene therapeutically to treat and manage suicidality in clients? Various treatment approaches will be discussed in depth, including CBT, DBT and ACT. Clinicians will be encouraged to examine their current practices around treating suicidality. Attention will be given to exploring the clinician’s emotional burden in treating suicidal clients, and best practices when a client completes suicide or is a survivor of suicide. Case vignettes, video clips and small group exercises will provide learners with an opportunity to practice skills individually and as a group.
