And there inevitably comes a time when the suicidal client is more than just an intangible dread. When an actual person, suffering and sitting in your office reveals they are having suicidal thoughts, many clinicians are left feeling unprepared, frightened, and unsure what to do next. The weight of keeping someone alive can steer you in the direction of avoidance. Desperate and alone, suicidal clients can find themselves passed from one therapist to the next. And that’s not care. Don’t let fear push you away. This seminar will transform how you view and work with suicidal clients and give you the clinical tools you need to save lives. Full of thought provoking lecture, engaging case studies, and guided instruction on a host of powerful clinical applications, this seminar will provide you with the tools you need to: • Assess for suicidal risk and identify implicit and explicit expressions of suicidal thought. • Formulate a game-plan for crisis when suicide is imminent. • Intervene in suicidal despair with proactive approaches derived from the evidence-based efficacy of CBT and DBT. • Effectively use targeted language with suicidal clients that will help you avoid stigma and successfully communicate your compassion. • Provide innovative grief support resources that connect clients and clinicians with other survivors of suicide and suicide loss Objectives: • Assess individuals at risk of suicide with a clinical approach that identifies both explicit and implicit expressions of suicidal thought. • Ascertain key indicators of imminent suicide and develop a strategy for determining when and how to hospitalize clients. • Formulate a CBT and DBT oriented case conceptualization that addresses how to effectively work with specific populations including veterans and the elderly. • Employ a collaborative safety approach to help clients survive a suicidal crisis while avoiding the pitfalls of suicide contracting and the false sense of security and decreased clinical vigilance that can accompany their use. • Connect suicidal clients with communication strategies that convey your compassion and support and effectively strengthen the therapeutic alliance. • Reduce access to lethal means with tips and tactics for implementing a multi-systemic approach that incorporates the suicidal person’s social connections into their safety plan.
