Suicide-Focused Assessment and Treatment: An Update for Professionals

The suicide rate has increased significantly over the past two decades, with nearly 50,000 people currently dying from suicide in America each year. To respond to our field’s most pressing clinical challenge, national suicide experts will present the most recent, cutting-edge advances in suicide-focused assessment and treatment using a comprehensive online syllabus.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify current risk factors, including recognizing the vulnerability of special populations and older adults
  • Utilize current methods of assessment, such as classifying suicide risk and formulating approaches to crisis care
  • Apply newer approaches to suicide assessment
  • Evaluate the newer treatments—such as ketamine, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), and cognitive therapy—and their impact on improving outcomes
