CBT for Military and Veteran Suicide Prevention

This workshop is offered at a reduced cost thanks to our Soldier Suicide Prevention Scholarship, which provides training scholarships for mental health professionals treating active-duty and/or veteran military members and their families.

Active duty military service members, veterans and their families pose unique challenges in treatment. This workshop focuses on the evidence-based methods of cognitive behavior therapy to help clients with suicide-related ideation and/or behaviors.

Led by Marjan G. Holloway, PhD, this experiential workshop will teach you how to use the cognitive model to conceptualize military-related clients. You’ll learn the three phases of a research -based cognitive behavior outpatient protocol to prevent suicide, including the collaborative creation of a step-by-step safety plan.

This workshop is designed for civilian mental health providers who routinely work with military service members, families, and/or veterans in community settings, as well as mental health providers who work within military treatment facilities and/or VA hospital settings.
