In this workshop, we will review effective strategies to assess and treat suicidal and self-injurious behaviours. We will start by reviewing what we know about suicidal and self-injurious behaviours (i.e. research and theory). Using principles and practices informed by dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT; Linehan, 1993), we will then review effective strategies to assess and conceptualize risk as well as to manage and treat people struggling with these problems. Some of the core assessment and treatment strategies will include conducting effective DBT chain analyses, addressing and solving problems contributing to suicidal and self-injurious behaviours, and coaching in certain DBT skills (e.g., distress tolerance skills) to help clients manage emotions and resist self-injury or suicidal behaviour.
