This three-day experiential workshop will provide an overview of evidence-based cognitive behavioral strategies that can be utilized for the treatment of patients with depression and suicidal ideation/behavior. The course will review fundamentals of Aaron Beck’s cognitive behavioral model as applied to both depression and suicide, cognitive behavioral strategies for structuring sessions, including setting a collaborative agenda, and under-standing transdiagnostic outpatient protocols in Cognitive Therapy for Suicide Prevention (CT-SP).
Specific techniques central to this approach will be emphasized, including assessing and engaging treatment motivation, conducting ongoing suicide risk assessment, supporting patients in telling their suicide narrative, developing a safety plan, building skills such as cognitive restructuring, distress tolerance, and problem solving, instilling hope, and preventing relapse. Attendees will practice learned strategies through demonstrations and break-out sessions.
