Assessment for Suicidality: A Primer for Mental Health Clinicians

NASW New Hampshire Chapter

Josh Klapperick 0 147
3 CEH
1 - 4:15pm ET
Presented by Charlie Safford
Description: This course is designed to provide a detailed overview of suicidality and implications for intervention on the part of every mental health clinician. This includes understanding and being prepared to identify the presence of suicidality and the level of risk, and to be able to provide a comprehensive assessment for the risk of suicide when a client comes into treatment. If we assume that the most important factor in clinical work is to protect our clients from life threatening harm, then knowledge of how to conduct a thorough suicide assessment can be considered one of the most vital components of a clinician's core knowledge base and skill set

Concussions and Brain injury: Clinical Considerations

NASW New Hampshire Chapter

Josh Klapperick 0 75
1.5 CEH
9 - 10:30am ET
Presented by John W Richards
Description: Social workers encounter survivors of brain injury much more frequently than is typically presumed. Furthermore, many of the behaviors, cognitive and emotional states that may occur as a result of brain injury can be misdiagnosed and there is an unfortunate lack of knowledge among many behavioral health practitioners regarding the sequelae of brain injury. In this workshop we will attempt to discuss this incongruity in two ways: 1) what should practitioners be aware of in assessing whether their clients are survivors of brain injury and what steps may be taken to firmly ascertain whether that is the situation, and 2) what kinds of behaviors, cognitive or emotional situations a practitioner may encounter from brain injury survivors and how might one deal with them.
