Suicide: Assessment, Treatment, and Management

One of the most challenging – and prevalent – issues clinicians can face is a client’s suicidal crisis. Although many clients experience major depressive episodes, training on how to manage suicidality is often not a component of training curriculums. Working with a client in suicidal crisis can be difficult and evoke strong feelings in the therapist. This course provides guidelines on suicide assessment, treatment, and management and includes information on providing services via tele-mental health.
