As a field, Suicidology offers a variety of trainings in assessing and treating individual risk for suicide. However, these trainings fail to integrate a family component. During assessment, family members can provide collateral information that allows a clinician to develop a richer picture of suicide risk. It is also important to assess how much family members contribute to suicide risk or present barriers both to receiving treatment and to treatment being effective.
Family Navigation for Suicide Risk will cover a variety of topics needed for professionals to become Certified Family Navigators for Suicide Risk. Over 3 days, attendees will (a) learn how to conduct a suicide risk assessment and determine the appropriate level of response, (b) specific family factors affecting both youth and adult suicide risk, (c) how to consider a family component even when working with only the suicidal individual, (d) how to help families understand how they can best support their suicidal loved one.
