Suicide: Assessment, Intervention and Management of the Suicidal Client  (5989)

10/31/2013 8:00 AM - 10/31/2013 4:00 PM

More than 30,000 people in the United States die by suicide every year. It is this country's 11th leading cause of death, and the third leading cause of death among people ages 15-24. Suicide is not about wanting to die, but about a powerful need for pain
to end. People choose suicide because they feel unable to cope with feelings of pain, hopelessness, helplessness, isolation, and uncertainties. Studies indicate that the best way to prevent suicide is through the early recognition and treatment of depression
and other illnesses such as addiction that lead to suicidal tendencies. This skills training event will help clinicians sharpen their skills in the areas of identification, prediction and assessment. Emphasis will be placed on clinical prevention strategies.
In cases where suicide has occurred, the method for a post-review or psychological autopsy will be discussed. CEs offered, please check the website for more information
