Event Details

CDP Presents: Means Restriction and Talking to Suicidal Veterans About Firearms - Online via Adobe Connect
This event will be held 3 October 2017, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. Eastern, with one hour of instruction and additional time for a Q&A period.

Description:
This 90-minute webinar (60 minutes instruction, 30 minutes Q&A), led by Craig Bryan, Psy.D., is sponsored in part by the Cohen Veterans Network. Means safety counseling, also referred to as means restriction counseling, entails assessing whether an individual at risk for suicide has access to a firearm or other lethal means for suicide, and working with the individual and their support system to limit their access to these means until suicide risk has declined.
Of the many interventions and strategies developed to prevent suicide, means restriction has garnered the most empirical support and is one of the only intervention that has consistently led to reductions in suicide across diverse samples and populations.
Although means safety has long been considered an important component of clinical work with suicidal patients, clear guidance and recommendations for discussing means safety with patients has only recently emerged. This presentation will provide an overview of means safety counseling with acutely suicidal patients and provide practical suggestions and tips for navigating conversations about safety with high-risk patients.

System Requirements:
This course will be presented via Adobe Connect teleconferencing software. Participants will not have to install any additional programs on their computer to take part. However, a web browser is necessary with updated Flash (11.2+) is required. Participants can test their computer's capabilities by clicking here (or visiting http://admin.adobeconnect.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm). We recommend those using Internet connections on government or military locations test their ability to load Adobe Connect in advance of the event to ensure there are no technical difficulties.

Microphones and webcams are not necessary, but you will need a computer with working speakers or headphones. It is recommended that Mac users access the training link using either the Chrome or Firefox browser to minimize problems. Everyone must participate using a separate computer rather than joining a group of people viewing via one machine. 

If you encounter connections issues when using your computer, the Adobe Connect app is available for iOS and Android devices. We will also be posting a recording of the presentation for on-demand viewing after the completion of the event. However, CEs will not be available for the recorded version.
