Sep. 8 and Sep. 22
Two-part webinar series

Between the year 1999 and 2018, the rate of death by suicide in the United States increased by 35.2percent. In a recent study, 33 percent of respondents said they knew someone who died by suicide. Every one of us would benefit from educating ourselves on what we can do to reach out and help someone who is suicidal. For clinicians, suicide is the most common psychiatric emergency they face. All mental health professionals should have easy access to comprehensive, state-of-the-art training on suicide prevention.

Recent research has identified suicide-specific therapies that are effective in treating both suicidal ideation and behavior.This two-part CE webinar with suicidologist Dr. Lisa Firestone will provide an opportunity for therapists to become familiar with risk assessment and effective crisis interventions, as well as empirically validated, evidence-based treatments for suicide that are fast becoming the standard of care.
