Presented by Dr. Lisa Firestone
Suicide is the most common psychological emergency that therapists will encounter, and it is on the rise. For mental health professionals with an active clinical practice, suicide is an occupational hazard that can be both emotionally and practically devastating. Recent research has identified suicide-specific therapies that are effective in treating both suicidal ideation and behavior. Most therapists are not aware of them nor have they been trained in them, so most suicidal clients do not receive these potentially lifesaving treatments. This course with suicidologist Dr. Lisa Firestone will provide an invaluable opportunity for therapists to become familiar with these empirically validated, evidence-based treatments for suicide that are fast becoming the standard of care.
