Suicide Prevention in Clinical Practice
Presenter - Kathleen Chapman, Ph.D.
1 CE Credit
In the last several years suicide has been among the top ten causes of death in the United States. There has also been an increase in research to better understand the causes of suicide, such as the types of experiences where individuals may have thoughts of suicide, risk factors and warning signs, reliable and valid screening and assessment, and evidence based intervention. In this introductory presentation I will introduce findings on identifying those at risk for suicide, conducting a screening, determining risk level, and brief intervention, as well as a list of evidence based treatments. I will discuss SAMHSA Treatment Improvement Protocol, the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS), and the Stanley and Brown Safety Plan Intervention, with resources for further information and free training.
