Presented by

Sarah Mortimer

Deaths by suicide increased by 10.9% in the UK in 2018; the first increase since 2013. So it stands to reason that some of your clients may be experiencing suicidal thoughts.

In this presentation you will learn:
  • The latest research on suicidal behaviour and how to use it to inform your assessment process, devise a treatment plan and ensure the safety of your client
  • How to communicate with your client about suicide
  • What evidence-based hypnotic interventions you can use with your clients to support them
  • Considerations for working with suicidal clients
  • Common therapist experiences and how to support yourself

By the end of this presentation, you will have greater knowledge and understanding of suicidality and feel more confident in working in this area.
