The Suicide Prevention-Training, Implementation and Evaluation program (SP-TIE) aims to reduce suicidal behavior and suicide across New York State through consultation, training and implementation of evidence-based practices.

Prevention of suicide involves identification, assessment, treatment and support for at-risk individuals as well as upstream efforts at preventing the development of suicide risk. Training is geared towards gatekeepers (e.g. school counselors, police, clergy), clinicians responsible for identifying and treating suicidal individuals and policy makers/administrators responsible for creating an environment that promotes quality care for suicidal individuals.

Our training is delivered via in-person and distance-learning modalities. Trainers include both staff of the Center for Practice Innovations and other expert consultants.

SP-TIE: Advanced Topics on Suicide Risk Assessment​

The SP-TIE: Advanced Topics on Suicide Risk Assessment training provides advanced instruction on conducting comprehensive suicide risk assessments to develop a risk formulation and engage in triage and effective intervention.  The framework of this webinar, including risk formulation, triage, and intervention planning are designed to be utilized in conjunction with informed clinical judgment. The webinar is a one- hour, interactive training in which a case vignette example will be used to guide review and identification of seven categories of risk; different types of risk factors including proximal, distal, and modifiable risk factors; protective factors; and two foreseeable changes. The impact of cultural factors on suicide risk assessment including understanding cultural attitudes toward mental health treatment and risk factors for suicide will be discussed. The webinar will provide instruction on how to prioritize risk and protective factors and develop a risk profile, assign a risk level, make triage decisions, and develop a treatment plan.  Finally, the webinar will conclude with a discussion of how risk formulation can aid in documentation and a summary of the training.
