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:

  • Become familiar with core competencies that enable mental health therapists to assess and work more effectively with individuals at risk for suicide
  • Define terms related to suicidality
  • Become familiar with suicide-related statistics
  • Identify major risk and protective factors
  • Understand the phenomenology of suicide

By the end of the 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 a clinician’s goal to prevent suicide and a 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

Continuing Education Credits:

The following continuing education credits (6.5) will be made available from the Suicide Prevention Resource Center at no additional charge:

  • National Association of Social Workers (NASW)
  • National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC)
  • American Psychological Association (APA)

Continuing Medical Education (CME):   Credits through the American Medical Association (AMA) – PLEASE NOTE:  If you are interested in CME credits, please notify the Missouri Mental Health Foundation at mmhf@missourimhf.org as soon as possible so necessary arrangements can be made. 

Participants must attend the full workshop to receive credits.  No partial credit will be given for partial attendance.
