Understanding Interpersonal Violence and Suicide:
Treatment and Preventative Approaches

Hilton Pasadena
168 S. Los Robles Avenue,
Pasadena, CA 91101

November 15, 2013 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

This presentation will examine how interpersonal aggressive behavior and suicidal behaviors develop and the implications for both prevention and treatment approaches. Various intervention approaches will be critiqued, differentiating between those programs that “work” versus those programs that inadvertently increase the level of aggression. How to assess the risk potential and predict intimate partner violence and suicidality will be highlighted. The controversy concerning evidence-based interventions such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy for depressed clients will be considered. How to implement the Core Tasks of Psychotherapy with depressed and suicidal adolescents and adults will be demonstrated. Detailed handouts will be provided that enumerate specific assessment and psychotherapeutic interventions.

Objectives:

  1. List three risk factors that contribute to the development of aggressive behaviors toward others
  2. Enumerate three specific ways that trainers can enhance the generalizability of treatment effects with aggressive individuals
  3. Specify three risk factors for assessing suicidal potential in depressed clients
  4. Describe three specific evidence-based intervention procedures that can be used with depressed and suicidal clients

Continuing Education Credit: Participants will receive 6.0 CE credits. Professional Psych Seminars is an approved provider for psychologists (APA ), LMFTs, LCSWs, LEPs and LPCCs, Drug and Alcohol Counselors (CFAAP/CAADAC), certified counselors (NBCC), nurses (BRN), and social workers (ASWB).
