Workshop Details

Navigating Suicide Assessment and Intervention: A Roadmap for Providers, 6 CE
Presented by Nicole Siegfried, Ph.D, CEDS

Suicidality is rated as the most feared clinical presentation that clinicians treat. However, the majority of clinicians receive less than 2 hours of training in suicide assessment and intervention. Clinicians require repeated, high-level training in suicide assessment and intervention to achieve competence in this area. This dynamic didactic/experiential workshop will provide the latest advances in best-practice interventions for suicidality. This program fulfills the KRS 210.366 requirement for Suicide Prevention Training.  Skill Level: Intermediate

Workshop Objectives

  • Identify myths and facts about suicide
  • Describe the suicidal mind
  • Identify risk factors, protective factors, and warning signs of suicidality
  • Conduct comprehensive risk assessment for suicide
  • Employ risk-level interventions for suicide
  • Utilize interventions for clients with chronic suicidality
