Course Description

Course description : With suicide among the top ten causes of death nationwide, the responsibility for careful assessment can be a source of extraordinary stress to clinicians. Recent studies on suicidal individuals indicate the DBT® protocol for assessing and managing suicidal behaviours is a critical component in effective treatment. This training teaches how to recognise risk of suicide, use specific strategies for management of high risk situations and care for clinicians’ own distress and well-being while working collaboratively with clients to build a life worth living.

The training is not specific to DBT, but a background in behaviour therapy is recommended.

This workshop will be of interest to clinicians who:

  • Want to begin treatment planning for suicidal clients.
  • Need to assess long-term and acute suicide risk.
  • Have no previous knowledge of DBT but would like to know more about using DBT targeting protocols to provide treatment for suicidal clients.
  • Need to develop an understanding of treating the therapist following a client suicide
