Suicide & Self-Harm: Helping People at Risk - 2 CPD Hours

As mental health professionals, there is no way for us to know who is going to commit suicide, but learning to successfully assess risk and address threats will greatly improve the chance that we can prevent it from happening.
This comprehensive video from the University of Manchester walks through all the steps necessary to effectively intervene when a client threatens suicide or self-harm. You’ll learn about assessment, crisis management, problem solving, and crisis prevention through a variety of realistic vignettes. Knowing what to do or say can be difficult to figure out when sitting with a potentially suicidal client. By watching clinicians work with a range of clients—including a school teacher, a teenage addict, and a paranoid-psychotic man—you’ll learn how to create a quick and effective alliance with your client, and how to ask the difficult questions that are necessary to assess suicidality and help them through their crisis. With her expert narration, Dr. Linda Gask guides you through each key step and technique of the process from beginning to end.
