Suicide Prevention Strategies and Support: Empowering Clinicians In and Out of Schools

 

Today’s youth experience significantly increased levels of sadness and hopelessness, leading to a youth mental health crisis. It’s imperative to arm school staff and clinicians working with youth with suicide prevention tools and resources to act effectively and keep clients safe. This training will equip social workers with a suicide prevention roadmap: including developmentally appropriate language surrounding suicide, dispelling myths of suicide, and prevention, intervention and postvention strategies. The course will be divided into two weeks. The first week will cover language, myths and prevention and postvention processes, while the second week will cover in depth clinical intervention skills for the Ask Suicide-Screening Questions (ASQ) and Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (CSSRS), next steps, safety plans and documentation. 

Upon completion of this course attendees will earn 2 Category I Contact Hours.
