Suicide and Risk Assessment:

Trainer: Liz Bartz
Assessing suicide risk or risk of harm to others is the most critical aspect of crisis work. Because suicide and homicide can and does happen, this one‐day core training emphasizes the importance of self‐care in order to be an effective helper during times of acute crisis. Participants will be given an overview of secondary trauma as a by‐product to the work they do, and asked to identify personal coping strategies to help mitigate the effects. Participants will also learn about the trauma‐ informed crisis response process and be given an overview of suicide statistics. Risk factors, warning signs and protective factors will be identified and participants will develop a crisis response plan, utilizing what they have learned. Also covered will be assessment and intervention with those at risk to harm others, including personal safety and duty to warn. Legal implications of decision‐making will be covered with an emphasis on risk management and use of supervision for response planning with individuals at risk for suicide or to harm others.

Wisconsin Mental Health Laws:

Trainer: Liz Bartz & Dawn Klockow
This one‐day course uses discussion and small group exercises along with lecture to help participants understand the laws and standards related to crisis work as identified in DHS 34. Mental Health Laws (Chapter 51) will be presented and the crisis worker will be prepared for the fact that not all of their cases are going to fit neatly into the Chapter 51 framework. Participants will be exposed to the other laws that may be involved in crisis response, such as Chapters 48, 938, 54, 55. Scenarios will be used to illustrate how to navigate between systems. Full Course Description.
