Event description

Description

The workshop is a two part program intended to increase helping knowledge and confidence around assessing for risk of harm to self and risk of suicide. Presenters will discuss implications related to cultural considerations in risk assessment. Vicarious trauma from suicidal clients will be explored, including discussion regarding responsibility for intervention decisions made as well as trauma related to clients who complete suicide. These workshops are designed to assist non-clinical and clinical professionals developing evidence-informed competencies for suicide risk assessment and clients with active suicidal ideation. Part two will include review legal documents related to risk assessment and suicidal ideation for both adolescents and adults needing assessment and hospitalization. Ethical considerations regarding suicidal assessment, treatment and risk will be covered. Clinical documentation of risk, particularly associated with decreasing counselor malpractice liability will be presented. Risk and protective factors in making clinical determinations will be discussed in detail, including the use of valid suicide risk assessment scales.


Part One: General Helping Professional Practices 8:30 AM to 11:45 AM

Part Two: Clinical Practitioner Interventions and Ethics 12:45 PM to 4:00 PM
