Ethics Community of Practice - Clients Contemplating Suicide: How to Detect and Refer

Breaching confidentiality is sometimes necessary when a client threatens harm – either to themselves or someone else. Join the Ethics Community of Practice as we discuss actions a coach can take when the red flags go up. A panel of expert coaches will share their own experiences and knowledge about a client’s potential suicide. Learning objectives include:

  • Become sensitive to some of the signs of someone who may be considering self-harm.
  • Learn how to engage in a productive discussion about the topic of suicide, rather than avoiding the topic.
  • Know what community resources are available for suicidal individuals, such as local mental health professionals, emergency clinics, and suicide hotlines.
