(1) Assessing and Managing Suicidal Risk (5 CEs)
Final 2020 Date: Friday, November 20 (online via zoom video) 9:00am- 3:30pm
After hearing a person’s tragic story and subsequent attempt to kill himself, author Paul G. Quinnett in his book Counseling Suicidal People, A Therapy of Hope, stated he remembered thinking “My God! This man needs professional help!” “But of course, I was the professional” (Quinnett 5). Many of us have been there or fear being there one day. It is not a matter of if but when this will happen to us. We are the ones who assist those in despair. We used to have the relative safety net of hospitalizing someone; but that reliance, along with other means, have changed dramatically based on changes in our profession, society, economics and legal implications. Do you have all you need to sit with someone at risk and provide a thorough assessment? And once assessed, do you have a clear plan of next steps and treatment?
This workshop will provide:
- Overview of history, research and statistics
- Discussion of the impact of our attitudes and values as helpers in the process
- Presentation of risk and supportive factors (including cultural discussion)
- Suggestions for completing a thorough risk assessment
- Suggestions for managing risk including counseling interventions as appropriate
- Understanding of 1013 (completing and use as a last resort
More announced by October 15th. Please check back!
