Working With Suicidal Clients Online Text-based Home Course (3 CE)

In stock

In the United States, more than 30,000 deaths occur each year as a result of suicide. Each day, approximately 86 Americans will die by suicide. Suicide is now the 11th leading cause of death in the U.S., which is greater than the rate of death by homicide or AIDS-related deaths. This course will explore suicide risk that is associated with mental disorders, particular ethnic populations, and with regard to age (e.g., elders, children, adolescents and college-age adults). This presentation provides therapists techniques for developing suicide assessment protocols and treatment interventions, and in treating suicidal behaviors using a Dialectical Behavior Therapy model.
