Join us on August 3rd for an interactive, small-group online AMSR training adapted to support the unique experience of substance use disorder treatment professionals and those in care.
About the Workshop
AMSR-trained professionals report increased willingness, confidence, and clarity in working with clients and patients at risk of suicide. The AMSR-SUD Training workshop prepares health and behavioral healthcare providers working in substance use disorder treatment settings to provide confident and empathetic treatment to patients at risk of suicide.
- Training Description
Substance use disorder treatment professionals make decisions every day about how to support individuals in care who may also be at risk of suicide. Substance use disorder care providers can help patients with elevated suicide risk by using the suicide risk identification, assessment, and management competencies taught in the AMSR-SUD training. The AMSR-SUD Training will prepare you to use the AMSR risk formulation in substance use disorder treatment settings, either outpatient, inpatient, or residential.
- SUD Curriculum
Substance use disorder treatment professionals make decisions every day about how to support individuals in care who may also be at risk of suicide. Suicide is a leading cause of death among people who misuse alcohol and drugs.
