Why People Die By Suicide 

Thomas Joiner, Ph.D.

Friday, May 5, 2017  8:30am-4:00pm   (6 CEUs)

Summary:

In his new theory of suicidal behavior, Thomas Joiner proposes three factors that mark those most at risk of death: the feeling of being a burden on loved ones; the sense of isolation; and, perhaps chillingly, the learned ability to hurt oneself. He tests the theory against diverse facts taken from clinical anecdotes, history, literature, popular culture, anthropology, epidemiology, genetics, and neurobiology--facts about suicide rates among men and women; white and African-American men; anorexics, athletes, prostitutes, and physicians; members of cults, sports fans, and citizens of nations in crisis.

Learning objectives:

1. To review basic facts about the epidemiology and risk factors for death by suicide.

2. To learn about a new theory of suicidal behavior.

3. To learn about anecdotal, clinical, and scientific evidence that evaluates this new theory.

4. To learn about approaches to suicide risk assessment.

5. To learn about developments in the treatment of suicidal behavior.

6. To learn about developments in suicide prevention.

7. To understand the experience of people who are bereaved by suicide.

6 CEUS:  Ph.D., LPC, LADC, CADC, LCSW, LMFT and Case Management and Nursing certificate of participation.   Pre-registration is required.  

This training will be held in the Perkins Auditorium at the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Center, 4502 E. 41st St., Tulsa OK  74135.

BECKERS HOSPITAL REVIEW RECOGNIZES PARKSIDE

Parkside Psychiatric Hospital & Clinic was named in “100 Great Places to Work in Healthcare” by Becker’s Hospital Review, a well respected health care industry publication and considered the leading source of cutting edge business and legal information for hospital and health system leaders. According to Beckers, “The 2013 list was developed through nominations and editorial research, and organizations were chosen for their robust benefits, wellness initiatives, professional development opportunities and work environments that promote employee collaboration and satisfaction.” According to the listing on Becker’s website, Parkside was named to the listing because of initiatives like the "By Your Side" program, which offers patients and their families emergency assistance for essentials like food, clothing and school supplies through volunteer-staffed programs. Parkside offers a rich array of employee benefits including employer-sponsored health insurance plans, flexible health spending accounts, employer-matched 401(k) plans and low-cost health club membership. In addition, the hospital hosts the "Knowledge is a Bonus" program, under which employees are presented monthly learning opportunities on anything from psychiatry to general healthcare to healthy living. Employees can take a test at year's end, with the highest performer earning a $1,000 bonus. Other hospitals named in the listing include the prestigious Mayo Clinic and the Duke University Health System. Becker’s Hospital Review states the selection process involves a compilation of all the nominations, which are then evaluated by the publications editorial team on a number of criteria, including employee benefits, employee satisfaction awards or recognitions, success stories from employees and other factors. After receiving feedback from a panel of healthcare industry veterans, Becker’s selects what they determine to be 100 of the best places to work.
