The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is offering a two-day evidence-based workshop for Tri-Service military/DoD/GS behavioral health providers on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Suicide Prevention online via Zoom, 12-13 April 2023, 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Eastern. Attendance at both days is mandatory. The workshop is free. Space in this event is limited and registration will close once capacity is reached, even if this is before the final registration deadline.
This course will be held online via Zoom. Also, a functioning microphone is MANDATORY to attend, in order to participate in the role-play sessions. Headphones are also HIGHLY recommended to provide the optimal experience.
This intensive two-day module provides training in the assessment and treatment of suicidal ideation and behavior. Participants will receive in-depth training in cognitive-behavioral therapy for suicide prevention and will have the opportunity to practice assessment and intervention strategies. Video demonstrations and participant role-plays will be used in class to practice key assessment and treatment techniques. The module lays the foundation for working with suicidal patients by providing a detailed review of the epidemiology of suicide both in the civilian population and within the military/veteran community.
Participants will be introduced to the Self-Directed Violence Classification System (SDVCS), a nomenclature supported by the DoD/VA for self-directed violence and suicidal behavior. In addition, a review of several theories of suicide will be covered as well as a risk and protective factors for suicidal behavior. The module is designed for behavioral health providers working with Service members and Veterans who are seeking in-depth training in empirically supported treatment options they can immediately incorporate into their clinical practice. The training will provide hands-on practice activities and is geared towards an actively involved audience through discussion and in workshop activities. Participants must attend both days, as the course material is cumulative.
This course will be presented via Zoom teleconferencing software. Participants will not have to install any additional programs on their computer to take part. However, a web browser is necessary. (Mac users are recommended to use the Chrome or Firefox browsers to minimize tech issues). Participants can test their computer's capabilities by clicking here (or visiting http://zoom.us/test).
We recommend all participants test their ability to load Zoom in advance of the event to ensure there are no technical difficulties. All participants must log in via an individual connection, rather than as a group using one machine. A headset/headphones are recommended. A functioning microphone is also MANDATORY to attend this training, to allow for participation in role-play sessions.
