Event description
Managing the Suicidal Client in Private Practice Presentation Length: 2 hour webinar

About this event

In Australia, suicide remains a significant public health issue and is the leading cause of death for Australians aged 15-44 years. For every suicide death, there will be as many as 25 people who will attempt suicide and many more who will contemplate suicide. The World Health Organisation (2014) has called for a multi-sectorial approach to address suicide. Psychologists and General Practioners play a key role in the treatment of suicide risk (Cramer et al., 2013), and thus require adequate supervision is provided to consolidate these skills and support them in their helping role (Mackleprang et al., 2014). Now more than ever, suicide risk assessment skills are crucial given the current global health and financial crisis.

This presentation aims to equip the Psychologist with the following:

- review the key components of a thorough risk assessment

- how to identify acute, chronic and acute on chronic suicide risk

- review the functions of suicidal thoughts and behaviours

- management of complexities that arise in private practice and a Telehealth interface

- review of appropriate evidence-based interventions in managing suicidal thoughts and behaviours

The presentation will be as interactive as possible and encourages questions and discussion. A 30-minute discussion will be facilitated at the end to allow attendees an opportunity for reflection, to ask questions and a space to discuss the most evidence-based interventions in managing the suicidal client.

Event will be recorded and distributed to all registrants via their registered email address.
