Suicide: the confident practitioner
'Suicide: The Confident Practitioner' has been quality checked by the National Counselling Society, and has met their standards for CPD training courses for counsellors.
Many students end their diploma course feeling as though there were elements which were either missing completely or weren't dealt with as thoroughly as they had hoped. And so, 'Missing Modules' was born.
As one of the most contentious and feared aspects of therapy, many counsellors and psychotherapists find that they feel insufficiently prepared to contract and work with clients experiencing suicidal ideation and/or intent. This course is designed to help cover those areas and aid practitioners in approaching this aspect of therapy with greater confidence and skill.
- Historical stance on suicide.
- Moral and ethical considerations.
- Legal position.
- The role of research.
- Writing your contract and policies.
- The implications of breaking confidentiality.
- Immediacy: when a client hints at suicidal issues.
- Risk assessment.
- "Support" contracts versus "no harm contracts".
- Reflective practice.
The course will be run in a seminar style, with opportunities for discussion and interaction throughout.
Copies of course presentations and other helpful resources will be supplied, plus a certificate of attendance at the end of the work (6.5 hours CPD).
