Tailored for Those Who Provide Chiropractic Care


This interactive 3-hour workshop will teach chiropractors practical tools for assessing and referring patients at risk of suicide. The workshop is presented by Dr. Jeffrey Sung, a medical doctor specializing in the treatment of suicidal patients. You will leave with a practical knowledge of:

·         Basic information about suicide in the United States

·         How to recognize warning signs of suicide

·         How to make a connection with someone at risk of suicide

·         How to assess for suicide risk

·         How to recognize and manage your own emotional responses when talking with suicidal patients

·         Common problems that arise when referring suicidal patients.

·         How to confidently refer patients to mental health professionals.

This Workshop Will Help You Do What is Best
for Your Patients and the Community

Workshop topics include:

·         Establishing an alliance with patients: Suicidal patients typically have ambivalence about death.  Specific techniques may help the practitioner join with the part of the patient that desires to live and make a plan to seek help.

·         Conducting a risk assessment: Suicide risk assessment involves gathering accurate information regarding the risk factors, protective factors and warning signs of suicide. 

·         Managing personal responses: Work with suicidal patients elicits emotional responses in the practitioner that must be understood and managed for effective work to proceed.

·         Proper Referral Techniques: Proper sequencing of the referral process increases the likelihood the patient will follow through with a referral


This workshop meets the requirement for Washington State-licensed chiropractors to obtain 3 CE hours in suicide screening and referral.  The Washington State Chiropractic Association is offering these workshops to build confidence in working with suicidal patients and to meet the newly-mandated training requirement.
