The Assessment and Management of Suicide Risk: State of Workshop Education
Pisani, Anthony R.; Cross, Wendi F.; Gould, Madelyn S.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v41 n3 p255-276 Jun 2011
A systematic search of popular and scholarly databases identified workshops that addressed general clinical competence in the assessment or management of suicide risk, targeted mental health professionals, and had at least one peer-reviewed publication. We surveyed workshop developers and examined empirical articles associated with each workshop. The state of workshop education is characterized by presenting the learning objectives, educational formats, instructor factors, and evaluation studies. Workshops are efficacious for transferring knowledge and shifting attitudes; however, their role in improving clinical care and outcomes of suicidal patients has yet to be determined.
