Register by March 14th to be trained online in Assessing and Managing Suicide Risk for Substance Use Disorder Professionals.
Join us on March 28th 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. AMSR-SUD training aims to provide participants with the background knowledge and practical skills that they need to address suicidal risk and behaviors in clients in care for substance use disorder treatment. Participants will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and apply practical skills in the five areas of AMSR competency.
- 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.

The AMSR for Substance Use Disorder Treatment Professionals (AMSR-SUD) curriculum develops skills in the recognition, assessment, and management of suicide risk and the delivery of effective suicide-specific interventions.
