Upcoming Webinar: Principles of Effective Suicide Care: Evidence-Based Treatments
Tuesday, February 10, 2015 | 1–2:30 p.m. Eastern Time
Individuals at risk for suicide who seek help from a behavioral health professional should expect to receive care that is research informed, collaborative, and focused explicitly on suicide risk. Research suggests that practitioners who receive formal training in suicide care models have improved confidence, competence, and efficacy.
In a comprehensive Zero Suicide approach, a skilled and savvy workforce with extensive training in suicide care and treatment is critical.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
Explain how evidence-based approaches to treatment improve outcomes for those at risk for suicide.
Recognize the importance of treating suicide symptoms directly.
Describe two evidence-based models of suicide care.
Understand the perspective of people with lived experience and how it is affected by receiving evidence-based care.
