Older adults show the highest rates of suicide completion in the United States over any other age group. Social workers and health care professionals are in prime positions to assess, intervene, and treat older adults who are at high risk for suicide.
This class will present the most recent data on suicide risk and completion in the older adult population. We will identify risk factors, address suicide risk assessment, and offer practical intervention models to participants. This course will use case studies and clinical examples for participants to engage in the process of risk assessment and to apply these strategies to real-life situations.
This class meets the Missouri requirement for at least 2 CEUs in suicide continuing education each licensure period.
