This presentation will review differences in treating acutely suicidal vs chronically suicidal patients.

This lecture will review the latest literature on crisis focused interventions, brief risk-reduction interventions and interventions that reduce suicidal behavior over the course of several months to a year.

Further we will review relevant ethics codes and practices that should guide the treatment of suicidal behavior.
