About the Event
Oregon CALM is a 6-hour training developed to assist health care and direct service providers in using Lethal Means Counseling with an informed, collaborative, and respectful approach. It has been adapted from the National CALM curriculum to incorporate components of Addressing Firearm Safety with Patients at Risk of Suicide: A Couse for Healthcare Providers in Rural Areas and research with Oregon rural firearm owners.
Oregon CALM is a suicide prevention training that is neither anti-gun nor anti-medication. Given the focus on lethal means counseling, course content and discussions will cover these topics in depth.
- Understand why means matter through local and national data, relevant research, and practice scenarios
- Learn the most effective ways to address means with individuals who firearms through Oregon-specific research, video demonstrations, and practice scenarios
- Build confidence in conducting lethal means counseling related to firearms, medications, and other means with clients at risk of suicide
Participants will receive a certificate of completion and 4 CE's from the Oregon NASW (approval is being requested to increase this to 5 CEs), either of which can be submitted to other credentialling boards for Continuing Education Credits.
