A 6 HOUR TRAINING EVENT ON MAY 17, 2018

PRESENTATION: Substance use providers and others working with suicidal individuals face ethical challenges which may vary for different age cohorts and cultures. Effective clinical practice requires providers to recognize and examine their own personal values and attitudes as well as respecting and understanding those of their clients. A provider’s response and service to clients must be provided in a competent manner, with recognition of the strengths and needs of the individual and within the context of ethical codes and standards. This presentation will provide an overview of issues such as dignity and worth of the individual, self-determination, informed consent, confidentiality, death with dignity/physician assisted suicide, and key national best practices related to safe messaging and postvention. While some of the material in the workshop may be specifically directed toward substance use providers, the concepts discussed will be useful for anyone working with individuals at risk for suicide. As a result of attending this training the participant will be able to:
- Discuss key ethical considerations in responding to individuals who are suicidal;
- Understand how professional codes of ethics guide decision-making in responding to suicidal individuals;
- Identify cultural and age-related factors associated with response to suicidality; and
- Consider how one’s own values, experiences, and belief system impact work with clients presenting with suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
