The likelihood of mental health and school professionals encountering suicidal ideation in their work is high when serving diverse populations suffering from mental illness, trauma, and adversity. Assessment tools, clinical steps taken, and documentation of efforts as a helping professional are vital to the well-being of both client and clinician during times of high stress. Join us as we explore modern approaches to suicide assessment and encourage discussion around the implications of technology on the assessment and coordination of safety and suicide, to be explored by helping professionals in measuring engagement, authenticity, and accuracy of risk and response within our diverse communities.
1. Participants will evaluate and explore the interaction between risk and protective factors when engaging a person at risk in a formal suicide assessment.
2. Participants will identify engagement strategies for a person at risk in suicide assessment and treatment planning to support symptom management.
3. Participants will examine documentation and resource needs to support a person at risk.
4. Participants will assess the latest technology supporting suicide assessment and safety planning in order to evaluate the appropriateness and efficacy of utilizing technology to engage a person at risk.
