Sui­cide Intervention

Sui­cide inter­ven­tion is per­haps the most stress­ful sit­u­a­tion any of us are called upon to deal with, whether we are a coun­selor, a care­giver, a fam­ily mem­ber or friend. This one-day work­shop looks at all the crit­i­cal aspects one must con­sider to suc­cess­fully inter­vene. We care­fully look at the sta­tis­tics and facts, exam­ine our own atti­tudes and notions, and iden­tify the indi­ca­tors and pre­dic­tors to assess the level of risk and the kind of inter­ven­tion nec­es­sary. Also pre­sented are the basics of inter­view­ing skills needed in an inter­ac­tive and prac­ti­cal man­ner. While this work­shop is offered as con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion for MFTs and LCSWs, oth­ers work­ing in the field of health and human ser­vices are also invited to attend.

There are lim­ited spaces avail­able. You must pre-register by Mon­day, March 11.

Rebecca Por­te­ous, LCSW, has pre­sented this work­shop for many years in the com­mu­nity and was orig­i­nally trained by the Sui­cide Inter­ven­tion Skills Work­shop, Cal­i­for­nia Depart­ment of Men­tal Health using a cur­ricu­lum that was cre­ated in Canada.

Sui­cide Inter­ven­tion (7.5 hours) meets the qual­i­fi­ca­tion of con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion for MFTs and LCSWs as required by the Cal­i­for­nia Board of Behav­ioral Sci­ences. There is a $10 fee for can­cel­la­tion prior to the course. There is no refund for non-attendance. Hum­boldt State Uni­ver­sity is a Cal­i­for­nia Board of Behav­ioral Sci­ences approved provider of con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion, PCE #774. Check-in is avail­able 15 min­utes prior to the work­shop. You must be present for the entire work­shop to receive con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion credit.

Nurs­ing Credit and CEUs: Accord­ing to the Board of Reg­is­tered Nurs­ing, “Courses taken for col­lege or uni­ver­sity credit can be used for RN con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion. To com­pute the num­ber of units earned into con­tact hours, use the fol­low­ing for­mula: 1 semes­ter unit = 15 con­tact hours (1/2 semes­ter unit = 7.5 con­tact hours). The name of the col­lege or uni­ver­sity should be sub­mit­ted with the renewal, rather than the provider number.”
