Moving the Needle on Veteran and Military Mental Health: Evidence-Based Treatments and Suicide Prevention

Friday, December 11, 2020
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. (MST)

The purpose of this course is to educate mental health professionals about the integration of suicide risk assessment and management into evidence-based treatments (EBTs) for PTSD. The course will first report on research about the comorbidity of self-injurious thoughts and behaviors and PTSD, and how EBTs such as cognitive processing therapy and prolonged exposure reduce suicidal thoughts. Next, this course will provide guidance for conceptualizing patients with suicide risk during PTSD treatment. Finally, this course will suggest ways to  incorporate evidence-based suicide risk management strategies with a focus on crisis response planning for suicide while implementing EBTs for PTSD.
