This course will include research information from agencies such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the American Association of Suicidology (AAS), and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for an in-depth look at the prevalence of suicide, the warning signs, symptoms of depression, and risk factors. Case examples, stories, research articles, and interviews with professionals will be presented throughout the training with opportunities for participants to evaluate their own understanding of this subject. Greg will provide helpful risk assessment tools and present an approach he developed entitled, “A.N.C.H.O.R. Management of Suicide Risk" that includes the key components for working effectively with suicidal clients.
“We recently utilized Mr. White’s expertise for our clinical team for suicide prevention. We have been providing clinical treatment for 31 years and we have experienced many trainers. Greg White is in the upper 1% of professional presentation, knowledge, and communication skills. Our entire team really enjoyed and benefited. I highly recommend him to your organization. You will be very pleased.” Dr. Gregory Jantz, The Center
