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.

About the Training Workshop

AMSR Training workshops provide a full day of training. This workshop is taught live in person or online by an authorized AMSR trainer. During the full-day session, there is 6.5 hours of content that includes discussion, role-playing, and video segments. 

AMSR Training is designed to enhance your skills in the recognition, assessment, and management of suicide risk. You'll learn about the delivery of effective suicide-specific interventions and how to develop collaborative treatment and safety plans with those at risk for suicide. You can ask questions, practice using the risk formulation, and receive feedback to improve your skills. You'll engage with the AMSR trainer as well as other participants for practice and skill development. We'll provide you with an AMSR manual, so you can take with you the information, background, and tips that are covered in the session.

The cost of the workshop is $135 per person. For online training, an extra $25 manual shipping cost is applied. Discounts are available for organizations interested in training large numbers of staff. Email amsr@edc.org for additional pricing information.
