This live webinar on Suicide Assessment & Treatment Planning via Tele-Mental Health is presented by John Sommers-Flanagan, PhD.
Suicide assessment and treatment planning is difficult and stressful in-person, and arguably even more difficult and stressful via tele-mental health. In this webinar, participants will be oriented to a strengths-based approach to suicide assessment and treatment. Additionally, using a role play and discussion process, John Sommers-Flanagan will demonstrate a strengths-focused interactive online interviewing approach and contrast it alongside common standardized assessment strategies (e.g., the PHQ-9, the ASK, and the Columbia). Discussion will focus on relevant research literature, as well as the pros and cons of supplementing standardized assessment instruments with interactive interviews when using a tele-mental health platform.
