Workshop Description

Suicide rates are reported to be increasing throughout the country, and suicide is now among the top ten leading causes of death in the US. Mental health professionals are leading the effort to stem what is increasingly being seen as a public health crisis.

This workshop will provide clinicians with an opportunity to consider and learn about suicide prevention in the outpatient setting. Clinicians will gain knowledge about how to recognize and assess suicidal ideation and behavior, how to engage with a potentially suicidal client, how to respond appropriately to an actively suicidal client, and where and when to seek assistance when necessary. We will discuss interventions for stabilization, as well as the challenges that can arise for clinicians when working with clients who are suicidal.

The workshop is interactive and provides clinicians with the opportunity to explore and examine treatment strategies and practices for addressing suicidality with clients, as well as with their families. Guidelines for interventions, as well as recommendations for their use in practice, will be incorporated into the presentation.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Identify risk factors and protective factors for suicide
  • Identify common signs and symptoms suggesting possible suicidality
  • Describe therapeutic interventions to engage with and assist clients who are experiencing suicidal ideation and/or behaviors
  • Describe therapeutic interventions to engage and support families of suicidal clients
  • Identify common challenges arising for clinicians when working with suicidal clients
