Suicide Assessment & Intervention Workshop

The next workshop starts on 14 May 2024 and registration for this workshop has closed.

This workshop is primarily focused on social workers in South Africa, but also suitable for registered counsellors and other mental health practitioners. The purpose of the workshop is to equip practitioners with theoretical knowledge and practical skills to respond effectively to suicide ideation in their clients.

The workshop is facilitated fully online via Zoom over the course of 12 hours, which usually consists of 2-hour sessions facilitated once weekly over the course of 6 weeks. This is to allow for integration of theory and practice, since the workshop also encourages participants to implement the skills learned.

This workshop is currently approved by SACSSP for 13 CPD points for social workers.
