Description

Crisis Response Planning Training Workshop

Despite lack of evidence supporting their use, about 79% of mental health providers still "contract for safety" when their clients become suicidal. Dr. Craig Bryan, Psy.D., ABPP, Executive Director, National Center for Veterans Studies at the University of Utah, and his colleagues have developed an evidence-based alternative intervention that helps clinicians and their clients create effective crisis response plans.This full-day workshop is designed to enhance professionals’ knowledge about crisis response planning for managing acute suicide risk, and to increase their ability to confidently and competently administer this intervention with at-risk individuals.

Evidence: Recent research of this method demonstrated a 75% reduction in suicide attempts among participants who engaged in crisis response planning versus a contract for safety. Crisis response planning also was associated with a significantly faster decline in suicidal thoughts and fewer inpatient hospitalization days.
