Course information

The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is offering a half day "refresher" webinar called Suicide Prevention: Putting Techniques Into Practice for both military and civilian mental health providers on 10 May 2017 from 1300-1700 East Coast time. Using a web-based platform called Adobe Connect, the webinar will feature both an overview of the 2-day workshop as well as an expanded review of some treatment techniques. This training is free and includes CEs, and the learning objectives will be:

  • Learn critical suicide risk assessment skills.
  • Examine cognitive-behavioral techniques in crisis intervention.
  • ​Practice cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy techniques in the context of CBT for Suicide.
  • Apply skills in Relapse Prevention for suicidal behavior.

A course flyer for printing may be found here, and a refresher FAQ is here.

Once you submit your information, you will receive a registration confirmation notice in the next 7 business days along with further information about Adobe Connect. Questions may be addressed to Ms. Kris Hannah at khannah@deploymentpsych.org.

Attendance Requirements

To be eligible you must either be civilian mental health provider with a clinical caseload of Service members, Veterans, or their families, or a Tri-Service military/DoD/GS clinician (to include contractors) who provides therapy to Service members at a military facility. Although attendance at the full 2-day Suicide Prevention training is not a prerequisite to participate, we do welcome all providers as long as it is understood this webinar will not be a complete overview of the Suicide treatment protocol.​

One must participate in the full 4 hours to receive CEs, as no partial credit will be given. CMEs are not available, but psychiatrists are welcome to participate and arrange for their own credits. For more information on CE credits for this training, please click here. Certificates typically arrive about 4 weeks later via email.

System Requirements

This course will be presented via Adobe Connect teleconferencing software. Adobe Connect is web browser-based, however, an add-in may need to be installed before attending. Participants can test their computer's capabilities by clicking here (or visiting http://admin.adobeconnect.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm) We recommend those using Internet connections on government or military locations test their ability to load Adobe Connect in advance of the event to ensure there are no technical difficulties. Microphones and webcams are not necessary, but you will need a computer with working speakers or headphones.

If you encounter connection difficulties when using your computer, the Adobe Connect app is also available for iOS and Android devices. Everyone must participate using a separate computer rather than joining a group of people viewing via one machine. We are unable to accommodate anyone by phone.​ We are unable to provide this training through DCO Connect or as a video link to watch at a later date.
