Description

Meaningless and isolation – suicidal people don’t feel “a sense of belonging.” Yet common strategies tend to increase this sense of isolation by viewing suicidal individuals as people to be feared, mechanistically observed, and sometimes isolated for their own “safety.”

Watch this recording to overcome common fears about approaching the topic of suicidal ideation with clients, and learn creative and compassionate techniques to deeply, warmly, and safely guide your clients through the dark places and back into the light.

You’ll feel transformed in the way you think about suicidal clients, and the way you think about yourself as a helping professional and human being.

Discover how to decrease clients’ sense of isolation, and effectively utilize innovative techniques to restore hope. Role playing and hands-on exercises will give you the opportunity to practice new strategies in a safe, supportive environment.

Leave this recording with a new confidence and creative skills to help people move from the dark, lonely, meaningless place into a place of hope, purpose, and connection with fellow human beings!

Ellen M - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"Dr. Farber found a way to make a topic which I have had to take numerous times, seem fresh and new. She was excellent and I would recommend this course to others. "

Nenden S - ROANOKE, Virginia

"This course provided me with expansive perspectives and philosophical approaches to deepen my understanding of suicidal behavior. I challenged my own fears about talking more openly about suicide with patients who have chronic ideation, and this did indeed help to decrease the intensity of the ideation and make it a more honest conversation. Thank you for helping me be a braver clinician and work with the client, joining in more effectively."

Daniele B - KERNERSVILLE, North Carolina
