Based on a study of more than 12,000 callers to a suicide prevention hotline, the goal of this session is to take the mystique out of conceptualizing suicidality and to present an evidenced-based, comprehensive model of suicide assessment. Issues of working with a diverse clientele, clinical supervision, documentation, and treatment planning will be highlighted in the context of comprehensive suicide assessment.
Attendees will learn about a new evidenced based, comprehensive model of suicide assessment.
Attendees will discuss not only how to assess clients with this model of suicide assessment but also how to document suicidality and integrate suicide assessment into continuous treatment planning.
Attendees will discuss the implications and practicality of this model in clinical practice and clinical supervision.
