Navigating the complexities of suicidality for a mental health professional can be quite challenging, even with top-notch training. Suicide, suicide attempts, and suicide ideation are difficult to predict and prevent.

To increase your confidence in addressing suicide risk, The Wellness Institute arranged a 90-minute live training titled:
Understanding Suicide to Prevent Suicide
with Dr. David Klonsky, a leading suicide researcher at the University of British Columbia.

Gain a practical, evidence-based understanding of suicide that will empower you to reduce suicide risk and help people build lives worth living.

Educational Objectives:
– Discuss current suicide theory to better understand and reduce suicide risk
– Identify factors that cause progression from suicide ideation to suicide attempts

Speaker Bio:
Dr. Klonsky is a Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia. His research examines suicide, including the pursuit of parsimonious models of suicide and better understanding of suicide motivations and warning signs. Dr. Klonsky also pursues research interests in emotion, personality, and assessment, many of which overlap with his work on suicide.
