Painless, Mandatory, Suicide Prevention Workshop

 

Kristina Roberts  PhD, QME

 

Part 1 of 2

(Details of Part 2 set for April 14th will follow shortly)

 

 

Description

Best practice suicide assessment and intervention has changed over the years, at great risk to psychologists who are not familiar with the current standards of care, research, and case law. Recent case law as well as current research has re-defined the psychologist’s responsibility and the “standard of care” in assessment, intervention, and mandatory reporting when it comes to issues of suicide.

 

Objectives

Maintaining current knowledge of suicide risk: assessment and intervention is critical for ethical client care. This presentation outlines the assessment of suicide risk including risk factors and protective factors, using the current standards of care, research, and case law, and does so in a straightforward and understandable manner.  It will outline levels of risk, appropriate interventions, when to hospitalize (and how), reporting requirements, and how to craft thorough safety plans that protect the patient and meet standards for documentation.  Gender differences and cultural variations of risk will be addressed, as well as resiliency factors that should be considered in the assessment.
