Description: PROSPER is the culmination of 50+ years of research in the field of suicidology, integrating the most contemporary research findings to raise the caliber of practice among healthcare providers. A recent study found therapists less willing to treat patients with suicidal symptoms due to therapists’ self-identified lack of training and resources. Less than 50% of graduate training programs in mental health provide formal instruction on suicide risk assessment, and such training equals 90 minutes on average. This eight-hour course includes didactics, discussion, video and skills practice to help learners increase their competence, confidence and comfort managing suicidal patients. Attendees will develop the most contemporary skills in evidence-based risk assessment, management and clinical decision making for suicidal persons.
