Preventing Suicide Through Safety Planning

Thursday, March 23, 2023 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Social workers frequently engage with individuals who are at-risk of suicide regardless of setting or work. Understanding the ideation to action dimension of suicidality is critically important for social workers to most effectively and compassionately support individuals at-risk of suicide. Effective assessment and safety planning holds tremendous power for preventing suicide and reducing reliance on costly higher levels of care.

Join Ryan Lindsay as we explore key suicide risk formulation factors and evidence-based strategies for safety planning to prevent suicide. This presentation is part of our Brown School Curriculum Showcase.
