    Understanding Gender Diversity


    Transgender and non-binary people have existed across time and cultures and are finally benefiting from increased visibility and freedom to exist openly.  This means we are all likely to know, love or treat a trans, non-binary or gender-expansive person.  Please join us as we untangle gender and learn about the lives of gender-diverse humans so we can create a world that is safer, more inclusive and increasingly affirming for people of all genders.

    SPECIAL EVENT:  CEU Opportunity

    Suicide: 
    Assessment, Safety Planning and Prevention

    For over a decade, the suicide rate in Missouri has been higher than the national rate. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death with suicides outnumbering homicides by more than two to one. With the increase in opiate addictions, it is critical that social workers are educated in how to assess, treat, and refer to appropriate levels of care to lower the risks for suicide.  


    Upon completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

    1. Recognize the warning signs of suicide risk,

    2. Understand family concerns with at-risk patients,

    3. Incorporate behavioral health screens and safety plans,

    4. Apply best practices that facilitate resilience and improve health outcomes,

    5. Identify resources and recent research for suicide prevention.
