CE Credit Hours: 2.00 Continuing Education Credit Hours
CEU Course Description
The time right after a suicide attempt can be very emotional and confusing, and it may be even more difficult than the time preceding the attempt. This intermediate level continuing education course, developed using information from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA), provides strategies for taking the first steps toward recovery after a suicide attempt. Stories of individuals who have endured through a suicide attempt are presented, as well as practical tools and resources that behavioral health professionals can share with clients who have experienced suicidal thoughts, ideations, behaviors, or attempts.
CEU Course Objectives
1. Describe events that may lead to a suicide attempt and common themes that occur among suicide survivors.
2. Discuss first steps taken by suicide survivors including talking with others, re-establishing connections, planning to stay safe, and choosing a counselor.
3. Outline strategies to help survivors move toward a hopeful future, to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and to support their recovery.
4. Identify safety plan components that can be put into place during a suicidal crisis and highlight resources that are available during these times.
5. Review stories from suicide survivors as they recount their experiences and their recovery processes.
