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.
