Suicide & Self-Harm: Stopping the Pain is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Aug 19, 2019 at Crowne Plaza Hotel, White Plains, New York, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 7.5 contact hours. Target Audience: • Social Workers • Psychologists • Counselors • Teachers • School Administrators • Marriage & Family Therapists • Case Managers • Addiction Counselors • Therapists • Nurses • Other Mental Health Professionals Course Description: Using case studies taken from his 45-year career as a suicidologist and the DSM-5®’s expanded and comprehensive approach to suicide and self-mutilation – Jack Klott will bring to life the ideas, theories and concepts presented in this engaging one-of-a-kind workshop. After examining the goals of suicide and the goals that the self-mutilator desires to achieve, you will delve into treatment strategies that will help guide your client to achieve those goals with other, less damaging strategies. You will learn which personality types are most vulnerable to acts of suicide and self-mutilation, as well as the essential link between these behaviors and addiction disorders. Most importantly, your attention will be focused on the treatment relationship and the key to hope for both the suicidal and the self-harm clients. Objectives: • Implement a risk assessment strategy that helps clinicians determine which clients present the highest risk for suicide and self-harm. • Analyze the concept of suicide “contracts” and communicate their impacts on clients, clinicians, and clinical vigilance. • Explain how intent differentiates self-mutilation from suicide attempts and accurately identify the one form of self-mutilation that is a warning sign for potential suicide completion. • Implement techniques for effectively intervening in crisis situations and develop a strategy for determining when and how to hospitalize clients. • Articulate the role of addictions in the suicidal and self-mutilating population and employ a multi-faceted therapeutic approach that ensures client safety and addresses treatment of the addiction. • Determine the purpose behind self-injuring behavior and communicate how alternative coping strategies can be introduced in therapy to help clients manage triggering situations without self-harm.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy Foundational Training is organized by Behavioral Tech (BTECH) and will be held from Nov 04 - 08, 2019 at White Plains, New York, United States of America. Training Description: This five-day training is designed specifically for individual therapists or skills trainers who are members of an intensively trained DBT team, but have not completed Intensive training themselves. It is meant to assist teams that have hired new staff or experienced turnover by allowing newer team members to get trained in the standard content of DBT. Lecture, video, role-play and small group exercises will be used to teach DBT theory and strategies in depth. Participants agree to attend the entire five days of training, do their best to learn the material, and participate in a willing, committed manner. The training requires that participants work in an active DBT® program, participate in a consultation team, and will continue learning DBT with a mentor. Only people who have attended the full ten days of the Dialectical Behavior Therapy Intensive Training™ are able to serve as mentors and sponsor team members to a Foundational Training. Training Objectives: • Use DBT research data to engage stakeholders in DBT. • Adopt and practice a dialectical worldview in treatment. • Incorporate DBT assumptions about clients into treatment. • Explain the biosocial model of BPD/pervasive emotion dysregulation. • Apply DBT principles and strategies during DBT consultation team meetings • Structure treatment according to the target hierarchies for each modality (e.g., individual, skills training, phone). • Complete DBT pre-treatment tasks (e.g., identify client’s goals, orient to DBT, obtain commitments). • Assess long-term and acute risk for suicide. • Apply DBT suicide crisis protocols. • Implement the levels of validation in DBT. • Conduct a chain analysis of an episode of a target behavior. • Generate and evaluate solutions for specific problematic links from a chain analysis. • Describe the goals of the DBT skills modules. • Describe the DBT problem-solving strategies (skills training, cognitive modification, exposure, contingency management). • Implement DBT stylistic strategies (reciprocal and irreverent communication). • Implement DBT case management strategies (consultation-to-the-client and environmental intervention). Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
