Working with risk in young people presents complex challenges. You will learn and practice techniques from specific models such as the Chronological Assessment of Suicide Events (CASE) approach, and a risk formulation model that emphasises prevention over prediction. This two-day workshop will review contemporary concepts and themes about working with suicide and self-harm and how they relate to working with young people with complex presentations.

This event will cover:

  • describe the usefulness and limitations of risk assessment frameworks
  • apply skills of the CASE approach to exploring suicidal intent
  • document and communicate risk formulations and safety plans more effectively with young people, their families and the broader s
  • apply risk prevention principles when working with challenging presentations
  • reflect on the impact that working with suicide and self-harm can have on clinicians and teams
