DBT Skills for Providers and Suicidal Patients - Day 1

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 -
07:30 to 16:00

This two-day training provides a practical approach to supporting suicidal patients within health and behavioral health systems using evidence-based strategies from Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Suicidal patients are also often impacted by substance abuse, chronic pain, internal judgment, and losses in their lives and can use additional skills to manage these experiences.

Training given by Dr. Ursula Whiteside, PhD, a licensed clinical psychologist, CEO of NowMattersNow.org, and Clinical Faculty at the University of Washington. As a researcher, she has been awarded grants from the National Institute of Mental Health and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and also treats high-risk suicidal clients in her private practice using DBT and caring contacts. As a person with lived experience, she strives to decrease the gap between us and them and to ensure that the peer voice is represented in all relevant conversations: nothing about us without us.

Continental breakfast, lunch and snacks to be provided both days.

Cost: $400
