Pre-Symposium Professional Training
August 2 and 3, 2016
Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center
San Marcos, Texas
 
In response to feedback we received from last year's conference, we are offering three (3) additional clinical trainings to support suicide prevention in a variety of professional roles.
 
Trainings include:
 
• TRAINING OPTION #1:
   August 2-3
   8:00 am - 4:30 pm (Both Days)
 
   Brief Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Level 1 Workshop
   with Dr. Craig Bryan and Dr. Ted Bonar
 
o This two-day workshop is geared towards mental health professionals seeking to acquire entry-level information and training on the assessment, management, and treatment of suicide risk among suicidal patients. The first day of the workshop provides intensive training in core competencies for the clinical care of suicidal patients, including general interpersonal dynamics, standardization of suicide-related terminology, and documentation strategies. The workshop then provides a detailed, step-by-step review of the 12-session brief cognitive behavioral therapy (BCBT) treatment protocol. The second day of the workshop focuses on applied skills training using case examples, role plays, and skills practice to illustrate concepts and interventions. Participants will receive a copy of the BCBT manual for future use with patients. This training also includes up to 10 hours of follow up telephone consultations to reinforce your clinical training.
 
*** PLEASE NOTE: TRAINING OPTION #1 runs concurrently with both
TRAINING OPTIONS #2 and 3.

o This 6.5 hour training (working lunch) trains participants to deliver the CALM 90 minute training. CALM is designed to help providers implement counseling strategies to help clients at risk for suicide and their families to secure access to lethal means, particularly (but not exclusively) firearms. It includes a number of components such as: background on suicide data and lethal means; an introduction to firearms; modeling of counseling strategy, among other important topics.  (Participants can register for both Options 2 and 3)

   Zero Suicide in Texas and Beverly Bernzen LCSW, Owner Family Resource Center,
   Lake Jackson, Texas and ASK Master Trainer
  
o ASK about Suicide to Save a Life is a workshop for adults who interact with youth or adults at risk for suicide. The program provides participants with an overview of the basic epidemiology of suicide and suicidal behavior, including risk and protective factors. Participants are trained to recognize warning signs—behaviors and characteristics that might indicate elevated risk for suicidal behavior—and how to intervene with a person they think might be at risk for suicide by seeking more information and referring to help. Using role-playing, participants practice asking other participants about suicidal thoughts, feelings, and intentions. Information is shared on where to find best practice based information in Texas and nationally.  (Participants in this training can register for both Options 2 and 3)
