Crisis Intervention: Responding to the Midnight Call! (3 Category I CEUs)

We all know the feeling of answering the phone and hearing a client in crisis on the other end of the line. The client’s severe distress or escalated tone can unnerve even experienced clinicians. Participants will learn how to assess any crises, react effectively and draw on the client’s strengths to de-escalate situations. Attendees will examine some of the common mistakes that occur in crisis intervention and will come away with a highly effective approach to crisis intervention.

QPR: Ask a question save a Life – LGBTQ Focus (3 Category I CEUs)

Everyday, approximately 123 Americans die by Suicide. Members of the LGBTQ population face additional risks for suicide. Suicide is currently the 10th leading form of death in the US. Yet suicide is also the most preventable form of death.  The QPR Method will teach you 3 simple steps that can help you prevent a suicide. This interactive training will bust common myths about suicide. We will also look at risks and rates of suicide among the LGBTQ popluation and look at how the QPR method can prevent suicide.   Participants will engage in discussion and increase their comfort level in working with suicidal clients. You will learn to recognize signs of suicidality, including situational, behavioral and verbal clues. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the nature of suicide and how to work with clients in a suicidal crisis. (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Executive Director, CE You!)
