This six-hour workshop is designed for frontline substance abuse counselors and others who work directly in any setting with people negatively affected by the use of alcohol and/or other drugs. It focuses on three basic skills: asking about suicide, monitoring for emerging suicide risk, and safety planning. It DOES NOT COVER clinical assessment, counseling, or treatment of suicidal clients. "Suicide Prevention Basics for Frontline Substance Abuse Workers” covers principles and practices based on sources that are evidence-based or are theoretically sound and widely used, such as SAMHSA's Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) 50; the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's Suicide Risk Assessment Standards & Practices; the American Association of Suicidology's Consensus Warning Signs; and the Safety Plan Treatment Manual (Veteran Version). The workshop includes instruction, interactive exercises, discussion, and take-home tools.
