Workshop Description:


The workshop focuses on competencies that are core to assessing and managing suicide risk, and is a collaboration of the American Association of Suicidology and the Suicide Prevention Resource Center. Participants will earn 6.5 hours of face-to face training, comprised of an engaging mixture of lecture and exercises. Attendees will be provided a copy of the Participant Manual, which includes an extensive bibliography for each section in the workshop, the curriculum content itself, workshop exercises, and space for note-taking and journaling. The course recognizes that complex ethical issues must be considered when providing care to suicidal clients and weaves threads of these discussions throughout the curriculum. Additionally, the course introduces the principles of The Chronological Assessment of Suicide Events (CASE), an innovative method for eliciting suicidal ideation. The result is an engaging mixture of lecture, video demonstrations, and exercises that leave clinicians more knowledgeable and confident when faced with suicidal clients. Participants rate this workshop very highly and, in overwhelming portions, said they would recommend it to their peers.


Learning Objectives:

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Increase your knowledge in the following core competencies:

    • Manage one's own reactions to suicide

    • Reconcile the difference (and potential conflict) between the clinician's goal to prevent suicide and the client's goal to eliminate psychological pain via suicidal behavior

    • Maintain a collaborative, non-adversarial stance

    • Elicit suicide ideation, behavior, and plans

    • Make a clinical judgment of the risk that a client will attempt or complete suicide in the short and long term

    • Collaboratively develop an emergency plan

    • Develop a written treatment and services plan that addresses the client's immediate, acute, and continuing suicide ideation and risk for suicide behavior

    • Develop policies and procedures for following clients closely, including taking reasonable steps to be proactive

    • Follow principles of crisis management

  • Experience a shift in perspective in working with individuals at risk for suicide.

  • We expect you will experience changes in perceptions of working with suicidal clients. For example, you may experience an increased willingness, confidence, or clarity in working with individuals at risk for suicide.

  • Identify changes to make in your practice specific to the assessment and management of individuals at risk for suicide.

Workshop Components:

Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk includes:

• 6½ hours of training, comprising an engaging mix of lecture and exercises

• A 100-page participant manual, including an extensive bibliography and other valuable resources

• A 4-part video presentation, highlighting the competencies taught

• Journaling throughout the day

• Ample time for discussion

Participants Will:

1. Gain knowledge in the following subjects: maintaining an effective attitude and approach, collecting accurate assessment information, formulating risk, developing a treatment and services plan, and managing care
