The psychological and practical skills training provided in formal institutions when working with suicidality is minimal, if at all.  All therapists and counsellors need to be effectively equipped to be able to work with suicidality and to know when to apply which theoretical framework and skills.  This training will provide a summary of intervention strategies that can be used in the treatment of suicidality, and then will provide an overview of the use of Dialectical Behavioural Therapy in the treatment of suicidality, as well as practical learning of the skills presented in this therapeutic model.

The training programme will cover:

  1. Introduction
  2. What is Dialectical Behavioural Therapy – understanding the framework?
  3. Components and assumptions of DBT
  4. Biopsychosocial model
  5. ABC’s of DBT
  6. Understanding of suicide
  7. Review of suicide treatment models
  8. DBT as a treatment for suicidality
  9. “Road to a life worth living”.
  10. Skills training modules
  11. Ethical considerations

NB: The attainment of CEUs or CPD points does not license any professional to practise outside of their scope or competency. CPD training is intended to broaden the knowledge of professionals and does not constitute professional training. The responsibility to practise within their relevant scope remains with the professional, regardless of what CPD training they attend.
