Description

Online Suicide Prevention Training via Second Life 

 

September 6-7, 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM Eastern

 

Description:

This intensive 2-day module provides training in the assessment and treatment of suicidal ideation and behavior.  Participants will receive in-depth training in cognitive-behavioral therapy for suicide and will have the opportunity to practice assessment and intervention strategies.  Video demonstrations and participant role-plays will be used in class to practice key assessment and treatment techniques.  The module lays the foundation for working with suicidal patients by providing a detailed review of the epidemiology of suicide both in the civilian population and within the military/veteran community.  Participants will be introduced to the DoD/VA supported nomenclature for self-harm and suicidal behavior and will have the opportunity to practice using the nomenclature during class.  In addition, a review of several theories of suicide will be covered as well as a risk and protective factors for suicidal behavior.  The module is designed for behavioral health providers working with Service Members and Veterans who are seeking in-depth training in empirically supported treatment options they can immediately incorporate into their clinical practice.  The training will provide hands on practice activities and is geared towards an actively involved audience through discussion and in class activities.  Participants must attend both days, as the course material is cumulative.


Attendance Requirements:

Participants will be required to have a Second Life account and install the Second Life Viewer on their computer.

Participants are also required to attend one of the pre-event "open houses" held online in Second Life.

Participants will not need to attend for the entire "open house," just a portion of the two-hour window.
The scheduled times for the open-houses are as follows:

  • ​1-3 P.M. Eastern 28 August
  • 10 A.M.-12 P.M. Eastern 30 August

  • 7-9 P.M. Eastern 4 September
 
​​Participants will need to attend their open house session of choice from the computer and Internet connection they plan on using for the training. This is to ensure all technical issues can be solved in advance of the event.
