2-Hour CE Suicidal Clients Online Video Course
Each day, approximately 86 Americans 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 workshop, first presented at Gerry Grossman Seminars' 30th Anniversary Continuing Education Conference in Wailea, explores 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.
