A run-through of the research and interventions relating to suicide and suicide prevention

Interview-style

  • Course Description

    Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in this country; it is also the 2nd leading cause of death in people ages 10-34. Unfortunately, suicide risk assessment is not taught, or is taught minimally in graduate school programs. Therefore, professionals enter the field with not enough training to work with their clients who are at risk. This podcast interview course will provide an overview of some of the important areas of suicide risk assessment, and of the myths that professionals often have about suicidal clients.

  • Learning Objectives
