Description

This recording goes beyond book knowledge of suicide. It’s full of candid, innovative and front line approaches to assessing and providing treatment to clients who present with suicidal and self-destructive behaviors. Practitioners will not only learn how to assess and treat suicidal patients, but will also be provided clinical tools to develop a suicide risk assessment that protects the clinician both ethically and legally.

Drawing from her years of experience across various populations and treatment settings, Dr. Meagan Houston will provide proven skills in conducting thorough suicide risk assessments, post-suicide risk assessments, and treatment plans with clients who present with suicidal potential. Candid discussion of case studies and use of video clips will also be featured. You will end the recording with:

  • All the tools necessary to conduct a thorough and “legally sound” suicide risk assessment
  • A comfort level with your assessment and decision on how to provide treatment
  • Strategies for the mental health provider when providing crisis intervention in contrast to long-term treatment
  • An ability to identify six population groups at increased suicidal risk
  • Ethical and legal concerns with respect to hospitalization and treating suicidal patients

This recording is beneficial to both the seasoned and fledgling mental health practitioner as it answers questions that have not been provided previously and that most clinicians struggle with. Dr. Houston brings her knowledge, passion, experience, and drive to an issue that most clinicians will encounter at some stage in their career.
