About the Conference
Each year in Ohio, we lose about 1400 lives to suicide, and more than 30,000 Ohioans have a suicide attempt. In 2010, we lost 196 Ohio youths (ages 15-24) to suicide, and more than 500 middle age adults (ages 35-54). Last year in the U.S., more than 1.2 million people had a suicide attempt. Yet most counselors receive very little training in suicide in their graduate programs and much of the available training focuses heavily on theory with little practical application.
This workshop will use both the current state of the research and practice experience in both schools and mental health to help participants learn the basics of suicide risk, assessment, prevention, and intervention. Participants at all skill and experience levels, in all types of settings, will be given concrete, practical information to conduct culturally and developmentally appropriate risk assessments as well as a 7 step model for intervention that includes specific and concrete strategies for counselors to implement. Attendees will be given extensive handouts for use after the session, with an emphasis on culturally and developmentally appropriate risk assessment and prevention programming as well as intervention guidelines for treatment. Small group activities, case studies, and videos will assist with experiential learning. Efforts will be made to include different practice settings (school, community, private practice, hospital, nursing home) and to attend to different levels of experience and training among participants
