De-Escalation and Coping Skills to Prevent and Manage Crisis Situations:

Developing coping methods for the consumer in crisis and those who care for them is an important part of crisis intervention. Skills such as mindfulness, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance can be very helpful for persons who are struggling to cope. Crisis Responders will learn skills informed by both Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI), and will gain more tools to add to their crisis intervention toolbox. Full Course Description

Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk (AMSR):

AMSR’s research-informed risk formulation model helps behavioral health professionals feel confident navigating challenging conversations and offers key strategies for providing compassionate care to people at risk for suicide. Participants will learn essential skills through videos, live demonstrations, and paired and written practice.

The 6.5-hour training program is based on the latest research and designed to help participants provide safer suicide care.  Health care providers face many challenges when working with patients and clients at risk for suicide.  Some patients may not disclose thoughts of suicide, and even when they do, the health care provider must make judgment calls about unpredictable outcomes, often with insufficient or contradictory information. Full Course Description
