CAMS Online Video Course For Individuals & Groups
For Individuals and Groups With CEUs Available for Psychologists, Social Workers & CoUnselors
This 3 hour Online Video Course provides an engaging demonstration of the CAMS model presented by the creator of CAMS, Dr. David A. Jobes,
This training experience combines didactic presentations by Dr. Jobes as he introduces an unscripted clinical demonstration of the use of CAMS with a patient through the course of 12 sessions of “standard” CAMS. The sessions capture the importance of the collaborative process essential to CAMS while also highlighting the challenges that clinicians often encounter when working with suicidal patients.
Dr. Jobes demonstrates techniques to reduce access to lethal means, drafts a viable CAMS Stabilization Plan with the patient, identifies direct and indirect patient-defined drivers of suicide, and cooperatively creates a treatment plan session by session with the patient to treat suicidal drivers.
The video includes a session after the patient experiences a major setback in their progress where Dr. Jobes helps the patient identify patterns in thinking and behavior that interfere with treatment. Resolution of CAMS treatment concludes the demonstration sessions and Dr. Jobes provides a final overview and summary of the CAMS approach to suicidal risk and intervention.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
My organization will be offering the Online Video Course to our staff, can we purchase access and show it to everyone in a group setting?
The Online Video course was useful but I would like to return to it in the future to refresh my memory once I start using CAMS with a patient. Is there any other way to get access to the information about CAMS in the video once my 7 days have expired?
Yes, detailed information about CAMS, including the use of the SSF and the CAMS Therapeutic Worksheet, research supporting the efficacy of CAMS, completed examples of the SSF, and recommendations for using CAMS with patients are all available in the CAMS Book: Managing Suicidal Risk: A Collaborative Approach, 2nd Edition. We recommend purchasing the CAMS book as a companion piece to the Online course as it is an excellent resource to support ongoing use of CAMS in your practice.
Where can I get more copies of the SSF?
Do you have the SSF in other languages? Where can I get copies?
My organization uses electronic health records. Is there an electronic version of the SSF? Can I make a template for my system? Can I make a template and just have the patient fill out CAMS before I meet with them?
Do you offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for the Online course?
