When our patients and clients present with suicidal ideation, some of us respond based on how we feel at the moment; based on prior experience, with a previous patient or client. This often takes place without the benefit of objective data to compare and to tailor response and intervention to our patients and clients in the presence of suicidal ideation.

What if we had a framework with a set of techniques and do's and don'ts to follow, in a stepwise approach, which we could tailor for each particular patient and client? This webinar on Techniques and Do's and Don'ts of Suicide Risk Assessment will provide you with such tools, practical ones, for you to start implementing right away.
