Working with suicidal LGBTQIA+ youth and families requires understanding broad risk and protective factors for youth and unique risk and protective factors in order to formulate a suicide risk profile. Moreover, integrating families into the suicide safety planning process requires understanding and integration of specific contextual information related to family safety, privacy and confidentiality, limits of confidentiality, and disproportionate risk to violence when utilizing emergency response systems.

In this workshop, we will explore the risk and protective factors for suicide, identify core components of suicide safety planning, and learn how to integrate the safety planning process for families. Ethical considerations when working with LGBTQIA+ youth experiencing suicidality will also be discussed.

This class meets the continuing education requirement for at least 2 CEUs in suicide prevention & 1 CEU in ethics.

General Admission: $60**
