MARSHFIELD, WISCONSIN – 2 day workshop by Christine A. Padesky, PhD

Best Practices: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Suicide

Although “best practices” always include some familiar practices, this workshop is designed to enhance skills for therapists at all experience levels. It emphasizes strategies to manage common obstacles encountered by therapists working with suicidal clients. Even the most experienced therapists can benefit from learning nuanced applications of interventions to improve therapy outcomes. Join us for this state of the art workshop that reveals a wealth of “Best Practices in CBT for Suicide.”

OBJECTIVES
Upon conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. REVIEW how to use a structured interview to assess suicide risk
  2. IDENTIFY and strengthen reasons for living
  3. CONSTRUCT individualized safety plans
  4. EXPLAIN how to incorporate client strengths into treatment
  5. REVIEW how to guide clients in the creation of coping cards
  6. PRACTICE building hope using a “hope kit”
  7. IDENTIFY and “spoil” suicidal imagery
  8. DEVELOP positive future imagery
  9. FORMULATE a suicide relapse management planConstruct individualized safety plans

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Therapists report greater anxiety about client suicide than any other clinical challenge. Unfortunately, anxiety tends to foster avoidance. Therefore, many therapists avoid asking in-depth questions about suicidal intent and do not learn how to effectively implement the detailed inquiries and interventions that are shown to decrease suicide risk. This workshop is designed to increase
therapist confidence and ability to successfully address suicide in clinical practice.

All therapists need to have a high level of skill in assessment of suicide risk. Participants in this workshop will be able to apply evidence-based methods for suicide assessment and implement interventions that can lower suicide risk, reduce suicide attempts, and increase client safety. Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) methods taught include use of Jobes’ structured Suicide Status Form
interview and a variety of creative cognitive and behavioral suicide interventions derived from the work of Aaron T. Beck’s suicide prevention team: identifying and strengthening reasons for living, development of safety plans, use of coping cards, construction of a “hope kit,” and methods for working with suicidal imagery.

To enhance learning, participants observe skillful live demonstrations by Dr. Padesky and then try out best practice methods in role plays and guided exercises. Detailed handouts include key forms to help sustain learning post-workshop. While suicide is a serious topic, this workshop is designed to be engaging and uplifting. It provides an evidence-based foundation for therapist practice so you can honestly communicate positive therapy expectations to your suicidal clients.

It is encouraging that each decade brings fresh knowledge and new findings to advance the successful treatment of suicide. Although “best practices” always include some familiar practices, this workshop is designed to enhance skills for therapists at all experience levels. It emphasizes strategies to manage common obstacles encountered by therapists working with suicidal clients.
Even the most experienced therapists can benefit from learning nuanced applications of interventions to improve therapy outcomes. Join us for this state of the art workshop that reveals a wealth of “Best Practices in CBT for Suicide.”
