Suicide is a common cause of the elevated mortality in eating disorders (ED). Although this is an oft-cited statistic, many clinicians report not knowing which individuals are at highest risk for suicide or how to effectively manage these clients clinically. In this webinar the speakers will
• Review the literature on mortality in EDs and the prevalence of suicide attempts
• Discuss recent research findings on who are at highest risk for suicide attempts, including specific ED symptom presentations, comorbid psychopathology, and personality traits, as well as psychological models of suicide risk and their application for treatment and prevention effort
• Describe specific clinical skills for working with suicidal clients.
• Discuss managing both acute and long-term high risk for suicide.

Learning Objectives:
❱ Identify the prevalence and correlates of suicide attempts in individuals with eating disorders.
❱ More effectively work with clients both at acute and long-term risk of suicide.
❱ Use strategies to deal with the stress of working with high risk clients.
