Suicide Risk Assessment: The Art of Interviewing
January 27 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm
Join us for a full day of training on the art of interviewing. Current research tells us that building relationships is the pathway to increasing our capacity to assess suicide risk. This training examines risk assessment from both at the client and a public health perspective. Therapeutic engagement, risk assessment, safety planning, identification and responding with appropriate interventions for risk reduction are addressed in this one-day session. This training shares the most current research as well as best practices for suicide risk assessment. Through small group discussion, participants are offered opportunities to explore the impacts of therapeutic rapport, review current risk assessment models and create safety plans for suicide intervention.
