Summary:​​According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention between 1999 and 2017 the age-adjusted suicide rate in the U.S. climbed 33 percent, from 10.5 to 14 deaths per 100,000 people. Rates of completed acts of suicide in males ages 15-24 increased by more than 8% in 2022.

The challenges of the COVID-19 presented a whole new realm of risk factors for suicide. In fact, the requirements for safety (e.g. social distancing, quarantine, etc.) during the pandemic render many of the protective factors against suicidal behavior difficult if not impossible to obtain - factors such as connection with community, family, and social institutions, a sense of agency and an ability to make changes in ones life, as well as access to primary coping skills. 

Risk factors for suicidal behavior continue to increase exponentially. Increased stress, burnout, an inability to grieve those who have been lost, shame, unemployment, and rising rates of alcohol and drug abuse are all triggers for an increased likelihood of suicidal ideation and engagement in suicidal behaviors. Being able to successfully assess suicide risk, understanding the neurobiology of suicide (yes! The research exists!), and defining and utilizing precise interventions for suicide prevention and resilience development is crucial for treatment success. 

Join Dr. Truitt on May 19th in an in-depth exploration of suicidality and empowered healing with the Havening Techniques. In this workshop, we will dig deep into the neurobiology of suicidality, discuss new paradigms for navigating the underlying frameworks of suicidal ideation, and identify powerful opportunities for utilizing the Havening Techniques to create a new way forward, free from the shadow of deeply painful suicidal considerations.

Note: Completion of the Havening Techniques Certification Training is a requirement to attend this seminar. The is an Intermediate Level program.
