    Suicide is on the rise in the United States, having gone up 24% between 1994 and 2014. It is the most common psychiatric emergency that therapists will encounter. Recent research has identified suicide-specific therapies that are effective in treating both suicidal ideation and behavior. The problem is that most therapists are not aware of them nor have they been trained in them, so most suicidal clients do not receive these potentially lifesaving treatments. For therapists with an active clinical practice, suicide is an occupational hazard that can be both emotionally and practically devastating—and 25% of family members of suicidal patients take legal actions against the patient’s mental health treatment team.

    This workshop will provide an invaluable opportunity for therapists to implement these empirically validated, evidence-based treatments for suicide that are fast becoming the standard of care.

    In this workshop you will learn to:

    • Identify the most important techniques/tools for assessing suicidal risk
    • Recognize innovative and effective suicide therapies which will allow clinicians in practicing to the standard of care
    • Activate strategies to minimize the risk of successful lawsuits or sanctions
    • Find effective coping strategies for the emotional impact of working with clients who attempt suicide or actually commit suicide
    • Implement effective state-of-the-art crisis interventions for suicidal patients

    Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is the leading approach to helping couples both resolve relationship distress and nurture effective interpersonal functioning and strong, lasting bonds.  Feelings are often hidden, unexpressed or misunderstood.  In EFT, we help couples learn how to deal with their feelings together, reach towards each other, and be responsive in more loving and positive ways.The format involves informative lectures sprinkled with videos, which include watching couples learning the same methods that we are covering in the workshop.  There is time to do exercises in private with your partner drawn from EFT.  We teach couples how to move out of isolation and frustration towards security, emotional safety, and long lasting relationship satisfaction. 

    Research shows that 7 out of 10 couples that go through EFT move from marital distress to marital satisfaction. 

    A team of EFT Trained Therapists will be available for guidance throughout the weekend
