It’s natural to feel anxious about clients’ possible harm to themselves. This workshop will provide you with information and support so you can feel more confident in your process, not feel alone, and recognize the importance you and your relationship with the client have in creating safety for your client. The more prepared we are to have these conversations with our clients, the more likely we will be able to manage the situation with compassion and care in keeping our clients safe. Research, tools, and related issues will be presented throughout the training.
