Once more, the tradition of the Aeschi Conferences was continued with yet another successful learning experience in clinical suicide prevention

Overall Theme of Aeschi 8:
Bearing the Struggle: Exploring the Challenges Facing Clinicians Working with Suicidal Patients


As usual, Aeschi 8 was organized around highly interactive lectures, seminars, and workshops. The faculty included some of the leading experts in the clinical management of suicidal patients: David Jobes of Catholic University of America, Konrad Michel of the University of Bern, Marjan Holloway of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, J. Michael Bostwick of Mayo Clinic, Christine Moutier of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Gregory K. Brown of the University of Pennsylvania, M. David Rudd of the University of Memphis, Dr. Alex Sabo of Berkshire Medical Center, Brian A. Palmer of Mayo Clinic, and many others.

Course Learning Objectives

1. Develop enhanced skills for engaging and assessing suicidal patients in a collaborative working relationship between patient and clinician.
2. Recognize the experience of the clinician in working with suicidal patients and how that can impact the care of the patient.
3. Define the importance of clinician and patient developing a narrative of the patient’s suicidality as the first stage in formulating a treatment plan.
