Please Be Aware: Bookings for this workshop close at Midnight on Wednesday 3rd July!

The day will begin with an exploration of the personal and professional experiences of suicide within the room before focusing on the assessment of risk and suicide in relation to our clients and our self.

This will be achieved by highlighting possible dilemmas and the potential impact that these may have on our practice. We will consider questions around defining and assessing risk, how risk might impact on privacy and confidentiality, and the many ways in which risk might impact on the relationship between client and therapist.

In the second half of the day we will use recorded case studies to consider the impact of suicide and risk on our relationship and contracting with clients before we update our own practice with regard to language, law, ethics and confidentiality. We end the day reflecting on how our own risk assessment process could be developed to build confidence in this area.

This workshop is suitable for both new and seasoned counsellors and psychotherapists. Participants are encouraged to bring relevant client material for discussion on the day.
