Southeast Webinar Series
What To Do When a Client Mentions Suicide
January 14, 2021
1:00-2:00 pm EST
Suicide is a topic no one likes to discuss. Yet discussing it is very needed. There is a real possibility that someone will reach out to their coach for help for themselves or – more likely – for someone else. This presentation will give you the basics you need for such a conversation. Coaches listen well, ask powerful questions, and help the client formulate an action plan. A layman’s suicide intervention is very similar. The only difference is the action plan becomes a safety plan.
Breaching confidentiality is sometimes necessary when a client threatens harm – either to themselves or someone else. This webinar will center on the actions a coach can take when the red flags go up and provide ample time for Q & A to address relevant concerns.
