Suicide: You have every right and I have every right to try and stop you w/ Sheena Beach, MSW, LCSW, LISW-CP
November 6 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$35.00
Suicide and the risk of suicide are understandably scary. This DBT-informed workshop will help clinicians to manage their fears around suicide and increase their self-knowledge, comfort, and effectiveness with clients who are experiencing suicidality. Sheena Beach will provide evidence-based assessment and treatment approaches to suicidality, with adaptations for acute and chronic suicidality. She will walk us through the Linehan Risk Assessment Protocol, offer creative ways to “contract for safety,” and address the pros/cons of involuntary hospitalization. She will also discuss the feared scenario of when clients attempt or die by suicide. Participants will be encouraged to explore their own views around death, dying, and suicide.
This event is Hybrid.
