During This Webinar, You Will Learn:

  • Popular Theories About Why and How People Become Suicidal. This section will cover different theories about suicide, such as those by Dr. Thomas Joiner and Dr. Edwin Shneidman. This will help you to understand how one becomes suicidal and learn the different aspects of suicidality.

  • Cognitive Distortions. When someone becomes suicidal, their thinking often becomes restricted and distorted. These distortions often exacerbate the situation and can be modified with work. Examples of cognitive distortions will be provided.

  • Ambivalence. Most suicidal people don't want to die; they want to end their pain. This ambivalence can be capitalized upon to learn not only reasons for wanting to die but also reasons for living. 

  • Hopelessness. The absence of hope is a key factor for people experiencing suicidal thoughts. We'll discuss what this means and looks like and how to implement hope so one can move forward.

  • Time for Questions and Answers. We'll make sure to leave enough time so you can have your questions or concern addressed.

  • Resources

Other topics that will be discussed in future webinars are: Self-Care and Advocacy
