Treating Suicide Risk with Competence and Confidence: How to Move Beyond Our Fears



The thought of a client dying by suicide can keep even experienced therapists up at night. Moreover, fear of malpractice liability often leads them to practice defensively, resulting in unnecessary hospitalizations that can significantly hurt therapy outcomes. This recording features evidence-based innovations in the assessment, management, and treatment of suicidal risk. Learn new suicide-focused clinical skills, such as how to evaluate different suicidal states and match them with the most effective interventions and treatments. You’ll discover: 

  • How to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations and an over-reliance on medications  
  • Effective techniques to help suicidal clients manage states of acute risk through stabilization planning or use of technology 
  • Evidence-based approaches to reliably assess, target, and treat clients’ suicidal risk and different suicidal states using frameworks such as Collaborative Assessment Management of Suicidality (CAMS), DBT, and suicide-focused CBT 
  • How to use CAMS to differentiate direct vs. indirect patient-defined “drivers” of suicide and how to effectively target and treat drivers to decrease suffering and help save lives.
