Description

This is not an introductory workshop on crisis intervention. For those involved in advanced clinical work, we will consider issues in working with suicidal persons, including prevention, intervention and aftermath. Topics include ethical issues, work with persons with chronic or terminal illnesses, self-injurious behaviors, legal and clinical standards of care, the impact of religious traditions and environmental factors such as childhood trauma, and the implications of failed or completed suicides on clinicians, families, and the community. Participants are encouraged to bring case examples for group discussion.
