This program meets both the new requirement for at least six hours of coursework or supervised experience in Suicide Risk Assessment and Intervention which will required for LCSW, LMFT, LPCC, & LEP license renewal as of 1/1/20 and the ongoing Law and Ethics coursework requirement.

Beginning with the awareness that our ability to predict suicide is little better than chance and that at present there are no consistently reliable empirically validated treatment techniques to prevent suicide, this course will demonstrate that in the past three decades much has been learned about the dynamics of suicide and many promising treatment approaches have been advanced that are slowly yielding clinical as well as empirical results.
