Suicide Assessment & Management: An Overview for Clinicians Working with Individuals and Families, 6 CE

Presented by Laura M. Frey, Ph.D, LMFT

Materials covered in this workshop are adopted from The Assessment and Management of Suicidality (2006) by M. David Rudd, which is a resource guide for clinicians who wish to learn the skills needed to assess, manage, and treat clients at risk for suicidal behavior. This guide covers key components for mitigating suicide risk, and it remains a leading resource for training new and experienced clinicians. This program fulfills the KRS 210.366 requirement for Suicide Prevention Training. Skill Level: Beginning

Workshop Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the differences between non-suicidal self-injury and key aspects of suicidal ideation and behavior.
  • Demonstrate an ability to screen for self-harm behavior and suicide risk.
  • Recognize a systemic perspective of suicide that highlights the role of family members, friends, and treatment providers.
  • Recognize my scope of practice for suicide and know where to refer individuals beyond my scope of practice.
