Clinical mental health professionals serve at the “buck stops here” level of youth suicide prevention.  Whether providing direct clinical care to youth at-risk or organizing and/or directing public health initiatives to prevent youth suicide, clinicians are tasked with understanding best how to assess, treat, and prevent suicide and suicidal behaviors among at-risk youth.  Yet, the great majority of clinicians have been under-trained for these tasks, are daily faced with assessment, treatment and ethical dilemmas for which they have  had limited experience and inadequate guidance, hence are at heightened risk themselves for negative outcomes and consequences.

This workshop will identify (and offer guidance to correct) common errors made by clinicians in the assessment and treatment of adolescents and young adults at risk for suicide, especially those leading to malpractice complaints; raise and discuss ethical dilemmas posed by these clients; and identify best and evidence-based practices in larger scale preventive interventions that seek to lower rates of suicide and suicidal behaviors by at-risk youth.
