Enhance Your Skills and Improve Outcomes with Depressed and Suicidal Clients
The ongoing treatment of the depressed and suicidal client is an enormous clinical challenge. Clinicians often state that they feel well-trained in assessing and intervening when their clients initially have suicidal ideations, but feel at a loss when the client returns for treatment, still depressed, and possibly still suicidal.
Dr. David Pratt has worked with this challenging population for over 35 years and brings his expertise to share practical CBT techniques for clinicians to use with their depressed and suicidal clients. He will help you integrate “Third Wave” CBT Therapies such as Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with “First and Second Wave” CBT therapies you may already be using. In addition, he will share practical interventions you can use for on-going depression and suicidal ideation, as well as evidence-based treatments for other common co-morbid conditions such as anxiety disorders and PTSD.
