Listening to Suicidal Clients: How to Move Beyond Fear and Defensive Practice
Stacey Freedenthal, PhD, LCSW | Click here for information about Stacey Freedenthal
The fear of client suicide can lead to "defensive practice," in which therapists interrogate clients about their suicidal thoughts, pursue emergency care when it's not truly needed, or take other actions to protect themselves legally and emotionally rather than to meet the clients' needs.
In this Networker Symposium workshop recording, you'll learn to work as an ally, not an adversary, when a client is at risk for suicide — so you can feel less afraid and anxious with clients who have suicidal thoughts.

Why People Die by Suicide: What the Last 20 Years of Research Shows Us
Thomas Joiner, PhD | Click here for information about Thomas Joiner
In his theory of suicidal behavior, Thomas Joiner proposes three factors that mark those most at risk of death: the feeling of being a burden on loved ones, the sense of isolation, and, perhaps chillingly, the partly genetic and partly learned ability to hurt oneself.
He tests the theory against diverse facts taken from clinical anecdotes, epidemiology, genetics, and neurobiology, with implications for the full spectrum of clinical activities related to suicidality.
