The first half of the workshop provides didactic knowledge about suicide, the development of the crisis response plan intervention, and its empirical support, all of which are designed to increase clinician knowledge. The second half of the workshop includes clinical demonstrations by the instructor and skills practice by attendees, which are designed for clinicians to acquire skill competency.
This training consists of a one-day training workshop as well as 3 months of bi-weekly, 1-hour consultation calls (approximately 8 calls over 3 months).
