Description

3 Ethics CEUs for Licensed Social Workers, Marriage & Family Therapists, & Professional Counselors


It is critical to examine the unique variables that may contribute to a higher risk of suicide within special populations that social workers encounter including, but not limited to, people of color, children and youth in the child welfare system, LGBTQ individuals, and more. This workshop goes beyond standard assessment tools to consider core elements contributing to suicidality, including racism, sexism, and other forms of oppression. Join us as we explore suicidality and prevention through a culturally competent lens in this interactive workshop.
