    Webinar Description - Two-Part Event

    The morning session will focus on suicide risk assessment in general and interviewing techniques in particular.  It will include case vignettes to simulate live risk assessments for experiential training in the complex process of thinking and feeling one’s way into the experience of another person.  Will also include discussion on the possibility of walled-off, pre-symbolic states that can invite unintentional clinical non-responsiveness and how to identify and engage for more genuine patient history and mental status; historical and contemporary perspectives on various topics; the intertwining of evaluation and treatment; teamwork; and management of poor outcomes. 

    The afternoon session will be interactive and include a review of the evidence supporting the use of a compassion-focused approach to enhance health care provider wellness.  Attendees will be provided with specific tools that they, as health care providers, can incorporate into their workflow and patient care.

Dr. Berlin is a recipient of the Holloman Award for outstanding achievement and service to emergency psychiatry from the American Association for Emergency Psychiatry.
