Suicide Assessment for Clinicians Working with Individuals & Families - Webinar
Presenter: Laura M. Frey, PhD, LMFT
Dr. Laura M. Frey is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and an Assistant Professor in the Couple and Family Therapy Program in the Kent School of Social Work at the University of Louisville. She has extensive clinical experience providing suicide risk assessments and crisis intervention with individuals and their families. She studies the intersection of family processes and mental health. With funding from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, she is currently researching family dynamics after an adolescent attempts suicide.
As a field, Suicidology offers a variety of trainings in assessing and treating individual risk for suicide. However, these trainings fail to integrate a family component. During assessment, family members can provide collateral information that allows a clinician to develop a richer picture of suicide risk. It is also important to assess how much family members contribute to suicide risk or present barriers both to receiving treatment and to treatment being effective.
