This Suicide Assessment and Management Training will be held on Friday, September 15th from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM in Room 103 at the Burton M. Cross Office Building, 9 State House Drive, Augusta, ME 04330.
The Suicide Assessment and Management Training is designed to prepare a new or seasoned school clinician to understand the risk of suicide, how to approach and complete an effective suicide risk assessment and intervention as well as ongoing management for a student at increased risk. The focus is on assessment skills within a school setting for those working in clinical roles including counselors, social workers, nurses, and psychologists.
The Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) will be used as a recommended tool for assessment. A systemic approach to suicide prevention is followed where assessment, intervention, Collaborative Safety Planning, and assured follow-up are the critical elements. Assessment and Safety Planning tools and model documentation will be included for ongoing use.
For clinical staff working in a school, this training can be counted for suicide prevention Gatekeeper Training renewal.
