RAV Webinar Recording: Sudden Disclosures

$50.00 inc. GST

This pre-recorded webinar runs for 1.5 hours and can be purchased online and accessed at any time.

This webinar is about responding to client disclosures that point to potential suicidality and it is not always an easy task. It is not uncommon for clients to reveal that they are ‘not ok’ either halfway through a session, or even at the very end of a session; even IF the topic of suicidality has been explored or questioned much earlier in the session. The reasons for later disclosures by the client around their suicidality may be as much to do with the clinician as it has to do with the client.
