    This workshop begins with a review of the spectrum of self-destructive behavior. Clients who present with multiple self-harm behaviors in combination are identified as being at significant risk. Such individuals tend to have the insidious combination of a biological predisposition to mental illness and a history of trauma. Working with such individuals requires constructing a hierarchy of risk because those who are “poly-self-destructive” are unlikely to extinguish all their self-harm behaviors simultaneously.

    The second part of this training focuses on distinguishing suicidal behavior from non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI; such as cutting, self-hitting, burning, and skin picking). Points of distinction include: prevalence, intent, method, frequency, aftermath, reactions of caregivers, and the importance, or lack thereof, of restriction of means. With this review as a foundation, the empirical relationship between recurrent NSSI and suicide attempts is discussed.

    Joiner (2015) has recently identified four key dimensions in predicting imminent risk of suicide. His Acute Suicidal Affective Disturbance (ASAD) is an important development in the field of suicidology. The ASAD will be discussed in detail with illustrative case examples.

    In addition, Klonsky’s new Three Step Theory of Suicide (2015) will be explicated. This empirically supported theory includes useful enhancements to Joiner’s seminally important Interpersonal Theory of Suicide (2005).

    Finally, this workshop will review Jobes’ Collaboration Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS; 2016). This evidence-based approach will be reviewed with an emphasis on Jobes’ pragmatic guidelines including the use of crisis response plans, coping cards, and survival kits.
