Suicidal Risk and Telepsychology: From Supportive Resources to Clinical Treatment
David A. Jobes, Ph.D., ABPP

The COVID-19 pandemic has suddenly and exponentially increased the use of telepsychology. While not explicitly excluded,
expert guidance on telepsychology use with suicidal patients has typically been cautioned because of acute risk challenges with
a remotely located patient. Nevertheless, since the spread of COVID-19 there has been increasing support for
mental health providers to work with suicidal patients via telepsychology-based care. Dr. Jobes will provide an overview of the general issues related to this topic and will provide a full range of resources that can be used to support suicidal people in crisis.
An overview to the telepsychology use of an evidence-based, suicide-focused clinical intervention will be discussed.

About the presenter: Dr. Jobes is a Professor of Psychology, Director of the Suicide Prevention Laboratory,
and Associate Director of Clinical Training at The Catholic University of America. He has published six books
and numerous peer-reviewed journal articles on clinical suicidology. Dr. Jobes is a past President of the American Association of Suicidology (AAS) and he is the recipient of various awards for his scientific work. He is a
Fellow of the American Psychological Association and is Board certified in clinical psychology (American Board of Professional Psychology). Dr. Jobes maintains a private clinical, consulting, and forensic practice in Washington DC.

Patient-Centered Opioid De-prescribing in Low-Resource Care Settings
Aram Mardian, MD & Beth Darnall, PhD


Opiates are widely prescribed to manage chronic pain and associated medical conditions, and some patients are at risk for development of dependence and/or misuse of pain-suppressing medications. In this three hour CE presentation, Drs. Beth Darnall and Aram Mardian will discuss management of prescribed opiates in medically ill populations. They will cover optimum prescription strategies and tapering concepts. Given the complexity of the material, this presentation was recorded in advance, however, Drs. Darnall and Mardian will engage in a live question and answer session at the end of the presentation.

About the presenters:

Aram Mardian, MD, is clinical associate professor of Family, Community, and Preventive Medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix, is a board-certified family physician, and holds additional certifications in addiction medicine, pain medicine, and medical acupuncture. He is the founding Chief of the Chronic Pain Wellness Center at the Phoenix VA Health Care System, which has developed into a model for interprofessional whole person care for patients with pain and opioid use disorder.  Dr. Mardian was a contributor for the Arizona Opioid Prescribing Guidelines published in 2014 and 2018 and a workgroup member for the VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guideline “Management of Opioid Therapy for Chronic Pain” published in February 2017. He serves as Co-Chair for the Health Care Advisory Team for the Arizona Prescription Drug Misuse & Abuse Initiative and Co-Chair for the Arizona Pain and Addiction Curriculum Workgroup.

Beth Darnall, PhD, is Associate Professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Anesthesiology,
