Suicide & Self-Harm: Stopping the Pain
Friday, October 23, 2020, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST
Category: CE Events: Adult Individuals

Asking your client, “where do you hurt?” often reveals the focus of the suicidal intent or the purpose of self-harm behaviors. As a clinician, it’s important to remember that even though you view suicide and self-harm behaviors as dysfunctional and maladaptive, your client views them as purpose-driven means of eliminating or managing unbearable levels of pain. For your client, these behaviors are beneficial, attractive, and helpful. Even the most seasoned therapists struggle to develop an empathic view of their client’s devastating methods of managing emotional pain. Learning how to help clients discover the sources of their pain and providing them with healthy options for solving and managing these struggles in their lives is the key to hope. Through case studies observed in his 45 years as a counselor and suicidologist, Jack Klott brings to life the ideas, theories and concepts you need to help your clients confront the darkness of suicide and self-harm behaviors.
