CAMS-care has partnered with The Trust and TrustPARMA to offer this free webinar as a way for psychologists to build awareness about using an evidence-based, suicide-focused treatment for suicidal patients. Our experts will explore the issues psychologists face and how to address licensing boards and angry clients. They’ll also look at the prevalence of suicidal ideation and why training more clinicians in evidence-based treatment is paramount to reducing the national suicide rate.

They’ll detail the magnitude of suicide rates in America, screening and assessment best practices to determine when to hospitalize a suicidal patient and the considerations for treating patients in an outpatient clinical setting. There will be an overview of evidence-based treatments (DBT for self harm, CT-SP, BCBT, and CAMS), systems of care, why psychologists will continue to play a vital role, using the Suicide Status Form (SSF) as a clinical roadmap, and much more.
