Essentials of Treating & Preventing Suicide Perspectives from the Experts


Suicide. It’s one of the most stress-inducing topics you deal with in therapy, and most clinicians receive little formal training on this important issue.

But the fact is, almost every therapist will treat clients who are struggling with suicide…

…so you need to know what to do when your clients have suicidal ideation or a history of attempts.

Fortunately, there are new evidence-based models that were specifically designed to help clients move past suicidality.

Now in this unique online course, you’ll get special access to experience these strategies for yourself and learn the tools and knowledge you need to be effective in treating and preventing suicide.

Imagine if you could be the therapist who knows how to confidently treat clients experiencing suicidal ideation without resorting to unnecessary hospitalization


In this groundbreaking online course, you’ll get data-driven tools and strategies that will guide you in effectively treating the suicidal person — from case conceptualization to assessment and beyond.

You’ll gain the confidence you need to make the best decisions for even the most difficult clinical situations, such as:

    • Does my client really need to be hospitalized?


    • How do I do an assessment that actually helps my client rather than feels like an interrogation?


    • How do I know whether the level of suicidality is an immediate threat?


    • What do I do if my client shares that she/he has a suicide plan?


    • What do I do if my client attempts suicide during therapy, and does this mean that the therapy is ineffective?


    • How can I be effective AND keep my practice safe from legal problems?


  • And much more!


By the end of this advanced skills training, you will learn dozens of proven communication strategies and methods that will help your clients feel safe to open up to you about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences — no matter how severe their pain.

Dedicated clinicians like you are devoted to helping those who hurt the most.

Packed with tools that you can use with clients during their worst life crisis, this course will teach you how to handle the most challenging dilemmas that arise when a client is suicidal, including…

Session 1: The Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (BCBT) Model with Craig Bryan, PsyD. ABPP
Many factors contribute to suicidality, with two of the primary vulnerabilities being cognitive rigidity and emotional dysregulation. Dr. Craig J. Bryan — leading national expert on military suicide — discusses Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (BCBT), an innovative treatment approach with a strong empirical evidence base. Dr. Bryan shows you how the proven interventions in BCBT help clinicians stay calm and slow things down in session, as we work to help our clients build emotion regulation, crisis management skills, AND dismantle suicidal belief systems.

One of the most widely used models for suicide treatment, CAMS (Collaborative Assessment & Management of Suicidality) practitioners can help suicidal clients discover lives of purpose and meaning in as few as 6 to 8 sessions.

Session 3: An Eclectic Practice Model for Suicidality with Stacey Freedenthal, PhD, LCSW

Clinical suicidologist and psychotherapist Dr. Stacey Freedenthal shows us what these three words might be, emphasizes the importance of meeting clients where they are at emotionally, and will show you how to make therapy a conversation — not an interrogation. In this session, you’ll get a practical toolbox that covers risk assessment, safety planning, and treatment planning.
