Suicide assessment and documentation are critical, but sometimes it’s not clear how to do these tasks well. Attend this hands-on workshop to learn the practical application of Linehan Risk Assessment and Management Protocol (L-RAMP), which can be utilized in any clinical setting. This course will walk you through when to use the L-RAMP as an assessment instrument and how to properly document interventions and treatment actions for suicidal clients. While the L-RAMP is an evidenced based suicide risk management strategy used in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), there is no requirement or prerequisite for knowing or using DBT in order to begin to use the L-RAMP.


a). Integrate the L-RAMP as a suicide assessment tool into clinical practice.

b). Report increased knowledge and skill set on how to use the L-RAMP for clients with suicidal ideations, gestures, and attempts.

c). Assess for use of the L-RAMP in clinical practice.

d). Complete case scenarios using L-RAMP.

Target Audience:

The target audience for this event includes psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, licensed counselors, MFT’s, and other clinical mental health professionals.
