Suicide Intervention and Substance Misuse: A Workshop for Clinicians

This workshop has been approved for six (6) Category I Clinical Suicide Prevention CEUs by NH NASW – CEU approval #3291

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in America. Further, the dual diagnosis client presents with greater likelihood to engage in suicidal ideation. Contrary to historical conceptualizations of the prevalence of co-occurring disorders, the dual diagnosis client is not a rarity in clinical practice. Close to 30% of persons who suffer with Major Depression Disorder also evidence a Substance Use Disorder. In many cases, the comorbid presentation provides the practicing clinician with a complex array of symptoms that can mask and confound attempts to accurately capture the client’s current mental health status. This workshop will provide mental health and addiction counselors with valuable information and skills to better prepare them as they encounter persons who are more likely to engage in suicidal behavior. Suicide is largely preventable. Attendees will be offered an opportunity to practice suicide prevention and intervention techniques that have been demonstrated to be effective in reducing the likelihood of suicide.

    We all know part of retaining good social workers is to provide them with meaningful professional development opportunities. New social workers are entering an exciting and important field that can sometimes be overwhelming. Connecting new social workers with others "in the same boat" can provide supports and resources necessary to be successful in their careers.
    The NASW NH Chapter is pleased to offer a seminar series for new social workers. This seminar series will meet monthly for eight sessions over lunch time. Lynn Stanley, LICSW, Executive Director of NASW NH, will be facilitating this series with help from Melissa Grudinski, MSW, a Chapter Board Member and new social worker herself. We will bring in seasoned social workers to address topics such as getting the most out of your supervision, building your professional network, the role of NASW in their careers, and clinical licensing. The last four sessions will address topics identified by participants. A portion of the time each session will be devoted to participants' questions and concerns.
    If you are a supervisor of a social worker with fewer than three years of experience, we ask you to recommend they attend. A referral from a supervisor is preferred, though not required.
    The series is free to NASW Members and $220 for non-members.
    Seminar registration is limited to a total of 15. Participants may be at the NASW NH office in Concord or attend virtually via Zoom.
