Workshop Description

This workshop will review screening tools and interventions frequently utilized in suicide prevention, such as: dialectical behavior therapy (DBT); collaborative and management of suicidality (CAMS); medications; hospitalizations; and crisis lines. The workshop will also review macro-oriented interventions and policy changes associated with suicide. The presenter will identify recent trends and changes in suicide deaths, and describe the need for varying approaches in diverse communities. Finally, the presenter will explore evidence-based opportunities to provide support, such as building a hope box, creating safety plans, utilizing caring contacts, and reducing lethal means. This workshop will be framed in a collaborative and integrated model, where social workers team with clients, their supporters, and other professionals to enhance safety.

  • Identify evidence based screening tools for suicide prevention.
