Featured Workshops:

Safety Planning Intervention Unpacked  (It’s More than Filling out a Form!) with Gregory K. Brown, Ph.D. & Kelly L. Green, Ph.D.  Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania For years, safety plans have been filled out to assist people at risk for suicide, but not all safety plans are created equal! The developers of the Safety Planning Intervention [eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com] will be in town to teach us how to ensure safety plans have their maximum impact.

What if it’s that Simple? Non-Demanding Caring Contacts for Suicide Prevention with Amanda Kerbrat, MSW, LICSW Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington, School of Medicine For decades, research has indicated that the Caring Contacts [eur02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com] intervention may be an efficacious, scalable, and low-cost intervention for reducing suicidal behaviors. Learn about this simple approach for reducing suicide risk with a local suicide prevention champion. This training will also address practical considerations for implementation such as the target population, message content, delivery options, and contact modality (e.g., postal mail, email and text messages).
