course outline

What the course will cover

In this one-day training course we will review and discuss how we assess and manage people who are at risk of suicide and self-harm with particular emphasis on the how we achieve empathic engagement with people who are presenting with complex mental health problems and are at risk.

 

The course will address:

  • Engaging patients and service users who are at risk- the key communication skills
  • Skills and strategies to use in assessment and management
  • How to use video-feedback sensitively and effectively to teach these skills and strategies routinely to our trainees.

We will use a range of approaches including brief talks, discussion, role-play and video feedback and work with real clinical case studies that participants bring along to the day.

 

This is a new course which builds on the work carried out by STORM over many years, but has been specifically tailored to the needs of psychiatrists and would be suitable for experienced practitioners as well as young psychiatrists and Foundation doctors.
