Course Description:

Suicide is a leading cause of preventable death in the United States and worldwide. Nearly 50% of individuals who end life by suicide see a primary care provider within a month of death, yet suicide risk assessment and treatment are consistently difficult in practice. Cognitive-behavioral therapy for suicide prevention is a valuable evidence-based intervention and effective approach to use in practice for individuals experiencing suicidal ideation and/or whom have made an attempt. This workshop will discuss suicide as public health issue in the US, suicide risk assessment, a brief overview of CBT theory and basics, and a central focus on intervention using CBT for suicide prevention.
