3-Hour State of the Field of Suicide Prevention Lecture

This three-hour course consisting of five 20-30 minute videos covers suicide statistics/epidemiology, risk factors and warning signs of suicide, contemporary research regarding why people die by suicide, and an overview of suicide-specific interventions, including but not limited to CAMS.

This lecture could be assigned outside of class with related activities, such as class discussions or an assigned reflection paper. Additional materials such as potential reflection questions and exam/quiz questions are available upon request. It would be a nice addition to broader courses in human services (e.g., abnormal psychology/psychopathology, systems of psychotherapy/counseling, etc.).

3-Hour Primer and Clinical Demonstration of CAMS

This three-hour videotaped lecture consisting of five 20-30 minute videos includes an overview of the CAMS Framework® as well as taped demonstrations by the creator, Dr. David Jobes. Like the state of the field lecture above, this could be assigned outside of class with related activities, such as class discussions or an assigned reflection paper. Additionally, clips from this video could be viewed and discussed during the lecture as a means of discussing similarities/differences between CAMS and other interventions covered in the course. This video would be ideal for courses in which students begin to learn therapeutic interventions. Additional materials such as potential reflection questions and exam/quiz questions are available upon request.

1-Hour Clinical Demonstration of CAMS Suicide Risk Assessment and Treatment Planning

This one-hour course consisting of four videos is an unscripted demonstration of the CAMS risk assessment and treatment planning tools performed by the creator, Dr. David Jobes. This could be assigned outside of class with related activities, such as class discussions or an assigned reflection paper. Generally, this would be a shorter option of the 3-hour primer and clinical demonstration of CAMS described above. Additional materials such as potential reflection questions and exam/quiz questions are available upon request.
