Suicide Intervention

Suicide intervention is perhaps the most stressful situation any of us are called upon to deal with, whether we are a counselor, a caregiver, a family member or friend. This one-day workshop looks at all the critical aspects one must consider to successfully intervene. We carefully look at the statistics and facts, examine our own attitudes and notions, and identify the indicators and predictors to assess the level of risk and the kind of intervention necessary. Also presented are the basics of interviewing skills needed in an interactive and practical manner. While this workshop is offered as continuing education for MFTs and LCSWs, others working in the field of health and human services are also invited to attend.

There are limited spaces available. You must pre-register by Monday, March 11.


Rebecca Porteous, LCSW, has presented this workshop for many years in the community and was originally trained by the Suicide Intervention Skills Workshop, California Department of Mental Health using a curriculum that was created in Canada.

Suicide Intervention (7.5 hours) meets the qualification of continuing education for MFTs and LCSWs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. There is a $10 fee for cancellation prior to the course. There is no refund for non-attendance. Humboldt State University is a California Board of Behavioral Sciences approved provider of continuing education, PCE #774. Check-in is available 15 minutes prior to the workshop. You must be present for the entire workshop to receive continuing education credit.

Nursing Credit and CEUs: According to the Board of Registered Nursing, “Courses taken for college or university credit can be used for RN continuing education. To compute the number of units earned into contact hours, use the following formula: 1 semester unit = 15 contact hours (1/2 semester unit = 7.5 contact hours). The name of the college or university should be submitted with the renewal, rather than the provider number.”
