National Council for Mental Wellbeing: Safety Planning for Danger to Others-It’s Different Than Suicide Safety
December 14, 2021 @ 1:00 pm
|Safety planning for violence risk starts with identifying evidence-based risk factors. To help providers develop a safety plan, structured risk assessment instruments contain checklists of evidence-based risk factors to document completion.
The core of a safety plan includes strategies and tactics for managing risk, including tactics for monitoring patients and identifying warning signs, patient supervision, treatment options and victim safety planning. A good plan also identifies who will implement each aspect of the plan and addresses any issues about adhering to confidentiality regulations.
Join Mental Health Risk Retention Group (MHRRG) for a webinar on Wednesday, December 14, at 1 p.m. ET about how and why safety planning for the risk of violence is different than safety planning for the risk of suicide and how the formats differ. Ron Zimmet, J.D., general counsel from MHRRG, will discuss how to apply the principles discussed to a hypothetical patient.
