Implementing TIP 50 for Administrators is a 1.5 hour training regarding how to implement SAMHSA's "TIP 50: Addressing Suicidal Thoughts and Behavior in Substance Abuse Treatment". It is primarily intended for administrators, middle management and supervisors.
While the TIP 50 is a best-practice guideline for working with clients with suicidal ideation and behavior in a substance abuse treatment setting, the model can be applied to a variety of agency settings. It conveys both evidence-based and "front-line" information regarding how to work to effectively work with suicidal clients, protecting them, as well as other clients, your staff, and your agency.
Each participant will receive a copy of the TIP 50 and supportive documents. It focuses both on providing appropriate counseling methods and administrative support of these methods.Participants will receive a certificate documenting contact hours received at the close of the workshop.
