Treatment Essentials for Helping Clients Confront Devastating Emotional Pain

Asking your client, “where do you hurt?” often reveals the focus of the suicidal intent or the purpose of self-harm behaviors. As a clinician, it’s important to remember that even though you view suicide and self-harm behaviors as dysfunctional and maladaptive, your client views them as purpose-driven means of eliminating or managing unbearable levels of pain. For your client, these behaviors are beneficial, attractive, and helpful.

In this online course, you'll learn how to develop an empathic view of your client’s behaviors, so you can help them discover the sources of their emotional pain and provide them with healthy, less harmful options for solving and managing their struggles to transform their outcomes.

Through engaging conversation and case studies, you will learn to:
  • Implement a risk assessment strategy to help determine which clients present the highest risk for suicide and self-harm.
  • Differentiate self-mutilation from suicide attempts and accurately identify when self-mutilation is a warning sign for potential suicide completion.
  • Recognize the profound danger of engaging in suicide “contracts” and communicate their impact on clients, clinicians, and clinical vigilance.
  • Determine the goals and purpose behind self-injuring behaviors and apply clinical strategies to help clients manage triggering situations without engaging in self-harm.
  • Intervene in crisis situations and develop a strategy for determining when and how to hospitalize clients.
  • Consider the role of addictions in the suicidal and self-mutilating population, and employ a multi-faceted therapeutic approach that ensures client safety while treating the addiction.
  • Overcome the “fear of litigation” that can severely detract from your ability to help the suicidal population.

We will explore the implications of a neuroscientifically-informed perspective on treatment and present the latest advances in effective interventions. When the trauma symptoms are “decoded” in this way, stuck, self-destructive, and therapy-destructive presentations become more understandable and manageable.
