As mental health professionals, it can be challenging to work with patients who present with significant risk. While we may feel fairly confident in our abilities as clinicians, a patient who is threatening to take his life can evoke strong feelings of anxiety. Such a situation can feel demanding and bring up questions about your role as a therapist. It can become quite challenging to reflect, to draw boundaries and be able to provide support and containment without feeling overwhelmed. The 6 part webinar is designed keeping this experience in mind. The series will combine teaching and reflections on risk assessment and management as we have known it through our work and experience. Through this engagement, we hope to address questions about the difference in roles, crises and risks and structures that help with containment.
– Understand and assess crises and the escalation of risk(s)
– Learn how to draw a comprehensive risk management plan
