    Confronting Suicide Through Prevention

    One of our offered suicide prevention classes is taught by Susan Marie, Ph.D. –  Suicide Prevention: New Interventions That Work. Lending to her expertise, Dr. Marie is a licensed psychiatric nurse practitioner with a specialization in psychopharmacology for complex patients as well as professional consulting experience. This course focuses on a development of your skills in suicide assessment and intervention. Course highlights include evidence-based practices, proven to be more effective at reducing suicide, introduction to zero suicide approaches, and development of safety plans. Particularly, this course will focus on skill adaptation and intervention of high-risk populations including veteran, teen, elderly, and LGBTQ clients. Counselors will walk away with a knowledge of three ways understanding crisis can increase the effectiveness of intervention, differentiating between 5 current and outdated beliefs of evidence-based prevention practices, the six steps in the creation of a suicide safety plan, and identifying three important factors when providing assessment and intervention with veterans.
