Description

Considering the fact that 1 in 5 clinical psychologists loses a client to suicide in their clinical career, there is a clear need for more extensive training at the post-graduate level and in the management and treatment of suicidal patients. This intermediate workshop provides an in-depth understanding of the dynamic of the legal, ethical and case management issues when dealing with suicidal clients. Further discussion of case studies and assessment instruments provides participants with practical skill enhancements that can be directly applied in their practice.
