Do you work with clients who use alcohol or substances? Are you confident in your knowledge of the specific factors associated with suicidality for this client group?
If you like to know more about the neuropsychological and neurochemical actions of substances and how these relate to suicide risk, then this is an excellent workshop for you! We examine a range of substances, including alcohol, cannabis, stimulants and opiates in addition to the different neuropsychological considerations relevant to suicidality. Further, we explore interview and assessment strategies to integrate with your existing practices.
Please note, this workshop focuses on clinical considerations, while the Suicide Prevention in AOD Wettings workshop explores system and service level considerations, such as working with diversion programs.
