Presenter: Fiona Shand
Suicidality is a common presentation across a range of health settings, and in particular during the assessment and treatment of mental illnesses.
This webinar aims to present what is known about suicide prevention in clinical practice. Topics covered will include the dynamic nature of suicide risk and alternatives to risk assessment; evidence-based models that inform therapeutic targets for modification; risk factors vs warning signs; evidence for CBT and other modalities for suicide prevention; and working with ambivalence and hope.
Presenter: Fiona is a Senior Research Fellow at the Black Dog Institute and the NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence in Suicide Prevention, a clinical psychologist in private practice, and Research Director of the LifeSpan project, a large, multi-level model of community wide suicide prevention being rolled out in five regions.
She holds a NHMRC TRIP fellowship to further the implementation of improvements to care following a suicidal crisis. Her other research spans e-mental health interventions for at-risk populations, Indigenous suicide prevention, and health service research.
Her team has completed the first Australian randomised controlled trial of a suicide prevention intervention with Aboriginal youth, using an app to deliver therapy.
