Description

Most clinicians report having at least one client who’s attempted suicide.

The implications are clear – all mental health professionals should be equipped to identify and intervene in suicidal crisis, no matter their area of focus. But without skills, techniques and confidence you’ll struggle to build the hope, purpose and connection you need to save lives.

Watch this essential live webcast and leave prepared to help when it matters most!

This critical training will give you a comprehensive roadmap for navigating assessment, treatment, and management for those at risk for suicide.

Not only will you learn to identify the warning signs and symptoms of suicidal ideation, you’ll get detailed guidance on addressing them with a flexible model that can be applied across all treatment modalities and settings.

A toolbox of interventions from DBT, CBT, somatic resourcing, writing, and mindfulness will help you to make clients feel seen, heard and understood, while instilling hope and showing them that life is worth living.

Sign up today and leave confident in your ability to identify, intervene and manage suicidal clients to move them from “Do I want to Live?” to “How do I want to live?”
