About the Training:

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States and the most frequent crisis encountered by psychologists. Non-disclosure of suicidal thoughts is very common, and Blanchard and Farber (2020) estimated that 21% of patients with suicidal thoughts deny having them when asked by their psychotherapists. This webinar identifies steps that psychologists can take to better identify patients who have suicidal thoughts or plans but who deny or minimize them.

Educational Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • Proactively address the reasons that patients conceal suicidal thoughts or plans;
  • Phrase questions to increase the likelihood of obtaining accurate information from their patients; and
  • Appropriately screen patients for suicidal thoughts.
