               Judy McGehee, LMFT        Sherry Shockey-Pope, LMFT


    Suicide rates continue to rise globally, and suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. As therapists, we know we should assess for suicidality, and we create a plan for treatment, but having a suicidal client in our office can elicit fear, worry, and anxiety. We understand the seriousness of the situation; however, there are many myths about suicide.  Therapists worry they are not knowledgeable enough; they are fearful of saying the wrong thing or worse yet, not asking the right questions. Therapists wonder what assessment to use; we ponder about our liability and where to send our client for more intensive services.

    Therapists often feel unprepared and unequipped to deal with the challenges of treating a suicidal client. Research shows that often that client ends up being passed from therapist to therapist without ever receiving optimal care or even the basics of the standard of care.

    When Judy and Sherry heard that there was a new requirement for suicide assessment and intervention, they wanted to create a class that they would sit through and learn usable, valuable information. They wanted to create a class that was chock full of information and would allow for participants to practice new skills. This class will not be boring, and when you leave, you will feel confident in your ability to know how to keep your clients safe. 

    This 6-unit CEU class will address those concerns and will satisfy the California State Requirement for Assembly Bill 1436. 

    Learning Objectives

    By the end of this course participants will be able to:

    • Discuss current research findings and statistical data for suicides in the United States.
    • Name at least 3 high-risk groups based on current research Identify at least two global facts about suicide
    • Describe two preventative factors to reduce suicide risk with clients
    • Identify and apply at least one assessment tool for clients
    • Create safety plans for clients who present with a high risk of suicide
    • Understand and Identify the risk of suicide for school-based populations
    • Identify the laws that govern this profession concerning suicide clients
    • Develop knowledge and understanding of how suicide affects therapists
    • Describe the cultural differences for suicide rates among populations

    Course Description:

    Beginning March, East Bay CAMFT Members and guests have the opportunity to learn from fellow members and present peer trainings with CEUs provided through EB CAMFT.

    Join our first presenter of the year, EB CAMFT Treasurer and Co-Program Director, Susan Kelsey, LMFT, RPT-S, and explore child therapy techniques to help children heal through telehealth and beyond during the pandemic.

    Educational Goals:  

    It is generally recognized in the graduate training of mental health professionals that not enough emphasis is placed on treating children (even though therapy students and associates are most often placed with this population).  This workshop provides an introduction to working with children remotely and eventually in person post-pandemic.

    Appropriate for licensed and pre-licensed therapists who already treat children or would like to include them in their practice, this introductory workshop will examine play and its usefulness in therapy with children, explore what a child’s play can reveal about their struggles, introduce the concept of getting therapeutic results with kids as young as preschoolers on a virtual platform and beyond, and review cases. 

    Play Therapy is a structured, theoretically based approach to therapy that builds on the normal communicative and learning processes of children (Carmichael, 2006; Landreth, 2002; O’Connor & Schaefer, 1983). Play Therapists strategically utilize play therapy to help children express what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal language to express their thoughts & feelings (Gil, 1991).  It is an evidenced-based method, in the office or via telehealth platforms, for creating the therapeutic relationships and emotional engagement necessary to allow a child to heal from even traumatic experiences. It allows a safe, fun way for children to express feelings and confront overwhelming experiences in their lives. Play Therapy strategies are developmentally-based theoretical models that engage children in the process of healing. Strategies for adapting it to a virtual therapy will be introduced.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify 3 differences between treating children and adults
    2. Explain the difference between therapeutic play and regular play
    3. List the 4 messages in children's play
    4. Administer at least 5 play therapy interventions that can be used in telehealth or office practice
