America is experiencing a youth mental health crisis. A recent study by the CDC found that suicide risk increased in all adolescents. Suicide attempts by girls have increased 30%. LGBTQ+ teens are three times as likely to consider suicide.
For therapists, suicide is an occupational hazard that can be both emotionally and practically devastating. In this 2-hour continuing education webinar, Dr. Lisa Firestone will focus on the current standard of care for crisis intervention and treatment of suicidal adolescents. Dr. Firestone will also share the latest research and evidence-based practices.
