Reliable and comprehensive risk assessment and management is a fundamental clinical skill. We need to be able to spot endemic risks such as suicide, violence, self-neglect, vulnerability and more, and to know how to work to prevent these risks coming true once we have spotted them. We also need to know what risks are particularly relevant to children and adolescents, older people, and people who misuse mood-altering substances, and again do the best to prevent these risks happening. This is exactly what the DICES system helps you to do, and in an interesting and engaging way that heightens your clinical practice.

Deliberate non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) is the intentional cause of harm to one's own body, very often to cope with intense emotional distress. Very often it achieves that aim, which is why it persists. It is more prevalent amongst young people, though by no means confined to them. Non-suicidal self-injury is not attempted suicide. People who self-harm do not intend to kill themselves, at that point in time. In attempted suicide, by contrast, the person intends to kill themselves. However, although it is important to distinguish between non-suicidal self-injury and attempted suicide, people who self-harm are in fact 10 times more likely to eventually end their own lives than people who don't. Sometimes, non-suicidal self-injury is triggered by events such as: bereavement, loss of employment, imprisonment, relationship problems, and other crises, yet at other times, none of those are present, and the non-suicidal self-injury seems to be purely an effective means of coping with tension and stress. NSSI is a presentation which is worrying and dis-empowering for many professionals, so this course sets out to give a clear and effective approach to working with non-suicidal self-injury by providing patients with something that works better for them than harming themselves. The APT has mastered the delivery of this training 'online anytime'; providing top class training you can access right now or any time that suits you.

There is more to working with suicidality than risk assessment and management, and having mastered those, we need then to be able to help people to build lives that are much more rewarding. It is unrealistic to think we can create lives that are completely free of suffering, but perfectly realistic to help create lives that are worth suffering for. And this 3-day course strives to achieve just that. Some professionals become anxious about seeing patients who are suicidal, so what this course aims to do is to help us become relaxed and optimistic about seeing suicidal people, because we will know how to give them hope, and how to deliver as well as possible on that hope.
