Training Overview Description

CAMS Framework™ Three-hour Anytime Online Course - 3 Free CEs

This three-hour video recording gives an overview of the CAMS Model by the creator of CAMS, David A. Jobes, Ph.D. The training features unscripted clinical demonstration of the use of CAMS with a patient through the course of 12 sessions, demonstration of techniques to reduce access to lethal means, development of a viable CAMS Stabilization Plan, identification of direct and indirect drivers of suicide, creation of a collaborative treatment plan, and a not to be missed set-back session and resolution. After completing the course, professionals can access valuable assessment and treatment tools.

Event-specific Details

Who Should Attend? The CAMS framework consists of an approach for guided suicide-focused risk assessment and ongoing psychosocial intervention. It is intended to be used by mental and behavioral health practitioners (e.g., psychologists, counselors, social workers) and students in those disciplines practicing under supervision, and mental health medical providers who see clients for regular mental health treatment sessions.
