JobesA Conversation with Dr. David Jobes hosted by Dr. Lisa Firestone –  Dr. David Jobes is a leading researcher on the forefront of creating a standard of care in treating suicidal patients. Dr. Jobes’ CAMS (Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality) approach is one of few empirically validated methods for treating suicidal individuals. Developed over 25 years, CAMS is a unique, collaborative approach that regards the suicidal person as an expert on their situation. Practitioners using this method engage the patient in the development of his or her own treatment plan. The flexible, adaptive, clinical approach has proven to be highly effective in a variety of clinical settings with a range of suicidal clients. In this online discussion, Dr. Jobes will introduce the methodology and research behind CAMS. By educating people on a treatment that’s been proven to be highly effective across a range of clinical studies, Dr. Jobes is offering new hope to individuals who struggle with suicidal ideation.


Learning Objectives:

1. Summarize basic CAMS approach to suicidality
2 Utilize suicide specific assessment and treatment planning
3. Describe the tracking of ongoing risk for suicide
4. Explain the interactive assessment process between client and therapist
