Managing Suicide Risk with Teenagers and their Families


Presented by Jessica Tappana, MSW, LCSW

3.0 Clock Hours

Meets 2.0 hour suicide prevention training and education requirement for licensure and renewal of licensure.


Working with a suicidal client of any age can feel overwhelming. When a teenager has expressed that they feel suicidal, there is the additional challenge of helping the parents navigate the situation. As social workers, we are often doing a lot more than simply assessing risk. We may be educating parents, validating the teenager, connecting them to resources and encouraging communication between the adolescent and their parent. This training will give you tools to help you the next time you are asked to assist a suicidal adolescent and their family members.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Learn to use one tool to confidently assess suicidal risk.
  2. Examine common family dynamics and suggestions for talking to parents and caregivers who either under or over react to a suicidal teenager.
  3. Increase confidence in the practitioner's ability to create and help a family implement a safety plan.
  4. Discuss situations where hospital commitment may be necessary.

Registration 8:00 am, workshop 8:30 am - 11:45 am

Evidence based practice is more than just the latest “buzz.”  It is in fact our ethical responsibility as social workers. This workshop will help social workers understand how the NASW code of ethics requires social workers to use interventions that have the best chance of helping clients and how that means becoming competent in evidence based practices to use in clinical work. Common barriers to providing evidence based interventions will also be discussed.


Educational Objectives:

1.Define evidence based practice

2.Apply the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) ethical standards to the concept of evidence based practice
