Learn to use brief cognitive behavioral therapy to assess, manage, and treat suicide risk. The first portion of the workshop provides intensive training in core competencies for the clinical care of suicidal patients, including general interpersonal dynamics, standardization of suicide-related terminology, and documentation strategies. The workshop then provides a detailed, step-by-step review of the 12-session brief cognitive behavioral therapy (BCBT) treatment protocol. Practical strategies for effective treatment delivery are provided using case examples and video vignettes that illustrate concepts and interventions.
Level of Instruction:
1. Describe an empirically-supported biopsychosocial model of suicide.
2. Develop a written treatment and services plan that addresses suicide risk and is based on empirically-supported interventions.
3. Use cognitive strategies and interventions to undermine suicidal beliefs that contribute to suicidal behaviors.
