Event Details

CEUs are available for this conference.

Hope and Recovery in Suicide Care presents an overview of clinical interventions for suicide risk with a focus on treatment strategies for ongoing psychotherapy. Improvements in the standardization of suicide risk assessment and management provide clinicians with strategies to manage an acute suicide crisis, but after these initial interventions are completed, clinicians are not always clear on the next steps for effective intervention.

This workshop will establish a foundation for current best practices in suicide risk assessment and management by reviewing recommendations from national oversight agencies. The focus will then turn to establishing a theoretical basis for how some people, in response to stressful circumstances and emotional distress, interpret the circumstances and experience the distress in ways that lead to suicide as an option. Based on this understanding, participants will learn treatment strategies to target these direct drivers of suicide in a manner that restores hope and facilitates recovery.
