About This Sample Course
This course will provide clinicians with an opportunity to apply their existing knowledge of suicide prevention to assess and intervene with an at-risk adolescent. In this course, learners will interact with a young woman in a simulated therapy session. Throughout the simulation, learners will make decisions on how to respond to her statements and actions, impacting her level of risk and outcomes. Supervisory input will also help guide learners through this simulation exercise.
