Nearly 25% of psychologists will lose a patient to suicide during the course of their careers. It’s a sobering reminder of how devastating mental illness is, and how important it is to recognize the technical, personal, and ethical challenges clinicians face in the assessment and treatment of such patients. The depth of suffering experienced by patients who seriously consider, attempt, or die by suicide is profound, and for a good portion of psychologists the challenges are unavoidable. Advances in treatment approaches, and a historical lack of specific training at the graduate level, have prompted an increasing number of jurisdictions to mandate post-graduate training regarding suicidality.

This webcast is intended to address clinical, ethical and risk management aspects of working with people who are suicidal. It will review basic risk management approaches, and relevant aspects of assessment, intervention and postvention and, time permitting, will also include review of basic issues in addressing clinician involvement in end-of-life issues.

Learning Objectives
1. Identify four major risk factors for those patients who die by suicide.
2. Name two suicide myths.
3. Describe three aspects of assessment and intervention that can foster
reduced risk.
4. List three risk management strategies as they relate specifically to working
with suicidal patients.
5. Describe two aspects of clinician’s roles in working with end-of-life issues (time permitting).
