GENERAL COURSE DESCRIPTION

Suicide Assessment

On September 1, 2017, California Governor, Jerry Brown signed the new Suicide Prevention AB 89 law, requiring every psychologist to demonstrate training in suicide prevention by the 2020 renewal cycle. There are a number of different ways that this mandate requirement can be met, the simplest of which is the completion of this introductory 6 CEU course on Suicide Risk Assessment and Intervention.

This course incorporates ten (10) documents, including a brief introductory video, an audiotaped interview, and eight (8) articles. The first two documents define and describe the phenomenon of suicide, provide epidemiology, risk and protective factors and outline treatment options. The second set of documents provides information about incidence, prevalence, and risk and protective factors for special populations including youth, elderly, LGBTQ, veterans, and those who are chronic mentally ill. The third set of documents identifies methods used in the accurate assessment of suicide risk, techniques helpful in safety planning, and treatments that may diminish suicidality. The last document offers resources and references that are useful to both client and clinician.
