Lawrence Hedges, Ph.D., Psy.D., ABPP.

Suicide Interventions in Relational Psychotherapy

This intermediate to advanced course for mental health professionals begins with the awareness that our ability to predict suicide is little better than chance and that at present there are no consistently reliable empirically validated treatment techniques to prevent suicide. However, Dr. Hedges will demonstrate that in the past three decades much has been learned about the dynamics of suicide and many promising treatment approaches have been advanced that are slowly yielding clinical as well as empirical results.

Modern Psychodynamic Understanding of Addiction
