Training for Creating and Managing Virtual Suicide Bereavement Support Groups
This AFSP live webinar will instruct you on how to use free video technology to hold a virtual suicide bereavement support group online. Instructions on the logistics of online groups, as well as practical ways to facilitate a virtual suicide bereavement support group, will be covered.Many suicide bereavement support groups are or have moved their in-person support groups to a virtual format over the last few weeks. These sudden and unpredictable changes in our daily lives have caused stressors for everyone, and, as we know, when someone is grieving, they are especially isolated. This free webinar will be recorded and available for all suicide loss support group facilitators.

SPRC Webinar: Training Suicidal Patients During COVID19: Best Practices and Telehealth
Click here to access event materials (recording and slides)
Mental health professionals continue to provide therapy for patients using telehealth despite this new era of quarantine and COVID-19. This is a significant change for most but research suggests that telehealth can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy and for some patients, it is even preferable. Many clinicians were treating patients at risk for suicide safely in outpatient settings, rarely turning to hospitalization, prior to this quarantine and can continue to provide safe and effective care using telehealth.
This webinar addressed the use of three best practices in caring for people at risk for suicide that can be delivered easily and effectively via telehealth: safety plans, treatment that directly targets thoughts of suicide, and DBT-based self-help skills and resources that clinicians can start employing in treatment immediately as well as share with patients.
