QPR: Ask a question save a Life (2 CEUs)
Everyday, 84 Americans die by Suicide. Yet suicide is 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. Attendees will learn the three QPR suicide prevention steps. Participants will engage in realistic role play and increase their comfort level in working with suicidal clients. Participants will learn to recognize signs of suicidality, including situational, behavioral and verbal clues. They 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!)
Class 2 – 1:00pm- 5:00pm
Solution Focused Brief Therapy and its uses in Treating Trauma (4 CEUs, Trauma)
Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) principles have been used to effectively treat a wide range of problems. SFBT has applications that are even effective in working with victims of trauma. Unlike classical psychotherapists, SFBT practitioners don’t go looking at a client’s past to search for the root of the problem. Instead they ask a series of questions. They help their clients find out what is going right and build on those successes. In fact SFBT may have a lower likelihood of re-traumatizing clients than other therapy methods.
This interactive training will familiarize you with the principles of SFBT and help you understand the implications of this highly effective therapy in working with clients including those who have a history of trauma. (Trainer, Jeffrey Davidson, LCSW-C, LICSW, Director CE You!)
