Webinar Recording: Building Hope and Motivation with Suicidal Clients in Criminal Justice

Working with justice-involved adults brings many challenges, among which are assessing the likelihood of future harmful acts and forming trusting relationships with clients in order to help them become productive members of society. One challenge that is often overlooked by those working with justice-involved clients is understanding and intervening when clients become suicidal.

In this webinar interview, host David Prescott and interviewee Nathalie Cyr, Senior Training Consultant for the New Brunswick Department of Justice, explore methods for helping suicidal people involved in the justice system. Among the skills they discuss are those used in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) and Motivational Interviewing.
