Go Back


This workshop overviews current psychological theory, research and clinical approaches to managing suicidality in particular the Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS). The "Assessment and Treatment of Suicidality“ workshop is fully accredited by the British Psychological Society and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. This one-day workshop introduces the psychology of suicide, and then proceeds to overview, demonstrate, and allow practice of the CAMS model.

• Be familiar with psychological theories of suicide and suicidal behaviour (i.e. Prof Thomas Joiner, Prof Edwin Schneidman, Prof Israel Orbach and Prof David Jobes)

• Be able to identify suicidal risk early in the clinical engagement and use the Suicide Status Form (SSF) to collaboratively assess suicidal risk

• Develop SSF – based suicide specific outpatient treatment plans that emphasize the development of a stabilization plan and the identification of suicidal ‘drivers’ as a focus of treatment

• Clinically track, assess and treat drivers with problem – focused interventions

• Be able to prepare a stabilisation or crisis response plan

• Handle and document a range of clinical outcomes using CAMS
