This program will benefit LMFT, LPCC, LEP and LCSW licensees and pre licensees by assisting in effectively promoting client safety when suicidal ideation, intent, or behaviors demonstrate a gross disregard for the safety of clients is suspected or stated. Included is a discussion on promoting wellness collaboratively and the importance of non-stigmatizing language when discussing suicide risk. Assembly Bill (AB) 89, which was signed by Governor Brown on September 1, 2017 and requires psychologists attain six hours of suicide risk management. Suffice to say, Marriage and Family Therapist will likely be required to take a similar course to maintain a basic set of competencies when clients present as an eminent risk to oneself as a result of symptoms associated with mental illness. This presentation assists in enhancing MFT/CFT's with some basic competencies when managing suicide risk with clients.
Understand how and when to discuss suicide risk with clients and their significant others. Summarize risk factors from warning signs. Plan with clients and their families in developing a safety plan when appropriate.
