Suicide Prevention and Clinical Management for Diverse Clientele
with Joyce Chu, PhD

Workshop Description:
Though almost all mental health professionals encounter suicide risk within their practices, formal training on suicide prevention and clinical management is sparse. The first portion of the current presentation will provide instruction and a forum for clinical discussion and case practice on the current gold standard practice for suicide prevention and management. The second portion of this workshop addresses the management of suicide in diverse populations common in California. This training will provide a foundational understanding of how suicide differs across cultural groups and will cover advances in the culturally competent assessment and management of suicide. Attendees will learn state-of- science theoretical measurement and applied research as practical approaches to assist clinicians in accounting for cultural influences in suicide risk among diverse populations. The aim is to provide guidance to advance culturally competent suicide research and practice.

Workshop Learning Objectives:

1. be able to identify the six key steps of assessing and managing suicide risk.
