Description: The White House has declared suicide to be a national and international epidemic and has mandated suicide prevention training for educational and health workers nationwide. This class is in response to mandates from California licensing boards. This intermediate to advanced course for mental health professionals begins with the awareness that our ability to predict suicide is little better than chance and that at present there are no consistently reliable treatment techniques to prevent suicide. However, in the past three decades much has been learned about the dynamics of suicide and many promising treatment approaches have been advanced that are slowly yielding empirical results. In this class Dr. Hedges reviews the major findings about the nature of suicide, the emerging treatment processes that are promising, and the dimensions of assessment and documentation that are essential for liability management in mental health practice.
