[box style=”green”]DRAWING ON EVIDENCE-BASED METHODS PIONEERED BY AARON T. BECK AND DAVID JOBES, DR. PADESKY ILLUSTRATES INTERVENTIONS THAT CAN LOWER SUICIDE RISK, REDUCE SUICIDE ATTEMPTS, AND INCREASE CLIENT SAFETY[/box]

This workshop is designed for therapists at all experience levels. It emphasizes strategies to manage common obstacles encountered by therapists working with depressed and suicidal clients. For example, Padesky’s clinical demonstrations and group exercises regarding behavioral activation teach principles and methods designed to target the inertia, pessimism and overwhelming fatigue that often discourage depressed clients from engaging in activities. Instead of only teaching the basics of Thought Record use, this workshop targets knowledge gaps and common errors made even by therapists who have used this method for many years: How do you identify and test images? What do you do if the hot thought is a core belief? What guideline teaches clients to find the most useful evidence that doesn’t support the hot thought? In addition, Dr. Padesky integrates her seminal work on strengths-based CBT to illustrate how depressed and suicidal clients benefit when interventions build on existing strengths.

All therapists need to have a high level of skill in assessment of suicide risk. Most of the second day of the workshop teaches suicide assessment and interventions, including methods for working with suicidal imagery. Past participants especially appreciated that structured interviews and interventions are demonstrated and practiced; key forms are included in the workshop handouts.
