WORKING WITH SUICIDAL CLIENTS - PSYCHIATRIC PERSPECTIVES
(DR RACHEL FREETH)
Saturday 19 May 2012
10.00am – 4.00pm
St Andrew's Church Centre, Station Road, Churchdown, Gloucester
How confident are you deciding whether and how to intervene on behalf of a suicidal client, or seek help from other professionals, perhaps against a client's wishes?
This workshop aims to help therapists assess the mental functioning of clients who are harbouring suicidal ideas, which includes considering issues of risk. It will also consider important legal and ethical perspectives such as the concept of mental capacity and autonomy.
As well as presentation of some theoretical material, this workshop will also make use of some clinical vignettes and will aim to provide participants with an opportunity to explore their own values and beliefs about suicide that may influence their clinical practice.
