WMHCA Workshops

Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk (AMSR)
Friday, August 01, 2014
9AM-4:30PM
Location: North Seattle Community College

Instructor: Sue Eastgard, MSW

We are pleased to announce that WMHCA is teaming up with NASW-WA and WAMFT to offer this important workshop on three different dates in three different regions of Washington State.

Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk (AMSR) is a one-day workshop for health professionals that will help them better assess suicide risk, plan treatment, and     manage the ongoing care of clients at-risk for suicide.  Behavioral health providers play a crucial role in preventing suicides and yet, many providers report that they feel inadequately trained to assess, treat, and manage suicidal clients.  AMSR  meets providers’ needs for research-informed, skills-based training.  AMSR is appropriate for all mental health professionals including social workers, marriage & family therapists, psychologists and licensed mental health counselors.  AMSR meets the legislative mandate for training under ESHB 2366. 

Learning Objectives: 

1. Recognize the 24 core competencies that enable social workers and mental health professionals to assess and work effectively with individuals at risk of suicide;

2. Increase their knowledge and skills in eliciting suicide ideation, behavior, plans and intent;

3. Increase their knowledge and skills in making a clinical judgment of the short and long term risks for suicide; and

4. Increase their knowledge and skills in developing a treatment & services plan that   addresses the client’s immediate, acute and continuing risk for suicidal behaviors. 

This 6 Hour Course meets the WA DOH requirement for Suicide Assessment Management Training.
