Presenter: Dr. Nicole Siegfried, Ph.D., CEDS-s


Location: St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 200 Longwood Dr SE Huntsville, AL 35801


Description: Clinicians report that engaging with suicidal clients evokes the highest anxiety of any issue presented in session; yet, many providers are undertrained in navigating the assessment of this mental health issue. The Joint Commission has recognized suicide assessment as a gap area for providers, and has made this an area of focus in training and accreditation. This workshop will provide participants with strategic evidence-based tools for assessing suicidality among clients. Attendees will leave this workshop with useful handouts and a greater understanding of the roadmap to evaluating suicide in practice.



Learning Objectives Include:

·      Define the challenge of assessing and treating suicidality in mental health settings

·      Describe risk assessments for suicidality

·      Employ risk-level interventions for suicidality



 Cost: $75 Early-bird (by 1/19/18)

          $100 Regular (through 1/25/18)
