About the Course:
In an effort to help practitioners with the daunting task of evaluating suicide potential in their patients, Dr. Thomas White, a clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience in risk assessment, has developed an entirely novel method — an actual system — of conducting risk assessments that are clinically sound, professionally responsible and legally defensible. This is the first attempt ever to simplify and organize the risk assessment process into a logical, structured format, with practical guidelines and specific step-by-step instruction that can be followed from the beginning of the assessment to the end. Embracing a multidimensional, biopsychosocial approach, the system addresses all of the risk factors and clinical techniques that make up a thorough and insightful risk assessment. This new system will make the task of identifying suicide potential more accurate, reliable and safe.
