Saving Lives From Suicide: Two-Part CE Webinar

In this Webinar: 

  • Describe the latest findings on warning signs and risk factors for suicide
  • Offer a conceptual model and a developmental perspective on the dynamics underlying suicide
  • Explore the internal struggle and the ambivalence surrounding suicide
  • Address both objective assessment and the formation of clinical judgment
  • Inform participants about recent research on empirically validated treatment approaches
  • Provide participants with state-of-the art crisis management strategies

Between the year 1999 and 2018, the rate of death by suicide in the United States increased by 35.2 percent. In a recent study, 33 percent of respondents said they knew someone who died by suicide. Every one of us would benefit from educating ourselves on what we can do to reach out and help someone who is suicidal. For clinicians, suicide is the most common psychiatric emergency they face. All mental health professionals should have easy access to comprehensive, state-of-the-art training on suicide prevention.

Recent research has identified suicide-specific therapies that are effective in treating both suicidal ideation and behavior. This two-part CE webinar with suicidologist Dr. Lisa Firestone will provide an opportunity for therapists to become familiar with risk assessment and effective crisis interventions, as well as empirically validated, evidence-based treatments for suicide that are fast becoming the standard of care.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss how to implement state of the art crisis intervention for suicidal patients
  2. Identify a number of empirically validated treatments for suicide that target suicide directly
  3. Recognize warning signs of immediate risk versus longterm risk factors
