Explore current thinking on suicide behaviours and consider the various implications for your role as a healthcare professional.
Suicide behavior is defined as a preoccupation or an act that is focused on voluntary, intentional death.
This is of major concern to all health care professionals, not least because these behaviours are in such conflict with the principles and motivations associated with preserving life.
You’ll explore the challenge of dealing effectively with people who demonstrate suicidal tendencies and how to prevent harm when faced with high risk behaviours.
Our workshop is relevant to any healthcare staff who may encounter people at risk of suicide.
