Montana Conference on Suicide Prevention — My Powerpoints

Good morning. I’m listening to Dr. David Jobes talk about innovations in approaching suicide assessment and treatment. I’m struck by the breadth and depth of his knowledge . . . and also discouraged by him acknowledging how difficult it is to change people’s mindsets regarding suicidality and its treatment. At this point we ALREADY have many effective psychosocial treatments, but disappointingly, the media and public knowledge still leans toward profiling hospitalization and the potential of medication (both of which show very mixed results).

I’ll stop with my rant here and post my ppts. Thanks for reading . . . and be sure to get the word out on innovations in suicide assessment and treatment (aka psychosocial treatments).

  1. Thank you for the great overview! I would have like to have heard a bit more of your dulcet tones, but grateful for the taste.

  2. I attended your session at the ACA sponsored suicide prevention conference. It was really good, so thank you for that. Although I am retired I’m still licensed in Texas and Arizona, so I try to keep up with current standards and practices. Thanks again.
