About the Course:
Managing Suicidal Risk: A Collaborative Approach provides a suicide-specific framework for identifying, assessing, and managing suicidality in a therapeutic setting. One of the things that makes this framework unique is the spirit of collaboration between the patient and the clinician, which contributes to an empathic, narrative, noncoercive, and team-based approach to reducing or removing the suicidal wish. The CAMS approach is extremely thorough and detailed, and is supported by years of research in the field of mental health. Jobes uses this manual to describe the development of the CAMS approach, the rationale behind each section, and the step-by-step instructions for applying the CAMS philosophy in practice.
This course is based on the book, Managing Suicidal Risk: A Collaborative Approach 2nd edition created by David Jobes, PhD, ABPP in 2016.
Publication Date:Second Edition 2016
