This course will give an overview of what risk factors to look for and how to determine what questions to ask.
The instructors will focus on early identification of risk factors, assessment, and referral. Consideration will be given to culturally appropriate assessment, evidenced-based interventions, and the importance of referrals to the larger CARE/BIT process and on-campus counseling resources. The Non-clinical assessment of suicide will offer participants a consistent, evidenced-based process to ensure the assessment of risk matches the interventions.
We will address how to build rapport, conduct an intake, documentation, how to make a referral, and the importance of follow-up. Consideration will be given to working as part of larger mental health system and challenges faced with limited resources, distance, and non-compliance.
What does the Non-clinical Assessment of Suicide (NAS) do?
The NAS offers non-clinically trained staff a list of questions to ask an individual to help gauge their overall risk level of suicide and makes recommendations for interventions.
Who can use the Non-clinical Assessment of Suicide (NAS)?
There is no substitute for a clinically trained/licensed counselor, however, the NAS assists non-licensed staff members to conduct preliminary assessments of suicide risk.
Participants will learn:
- Common suicide risk factors; environmental stressors (catalyst events, loss)
- The impact of bullying and teasing behaviors as they relate to risk
- Practical application/group work through the use of case studies and examples
- To address online threat over social media and during distance classes
- How to apply the Non-Clinical Assessment of Suicide (NAS) to aid in structuring the assessment of risk
