Suicide is a leading health risk in the United States and worldwide. Many group clients experience varying degrees of suicidality on an ongoing basis. Group therapists have clinical, ethical and legal responsibilities to monitor suicide risk in their clients. This event will provide the group therapist with knowledge, tools and interventions that permit them to manage these risks in the context of their groups.
