CAMS Training - TRAINING IS FULL

The Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS) Training 


Backed by multiple randomized controlled clinical trials and shown to quickly reduce suicidal ideation, overall distress, and hopelessness in as few as 6 sessions, the CAMS Framework® is both an assessment and suicide-focused treatment for people with serious thoughts of suicide. 
 
The CAMS method is flexible. It can be adapted to various cultures, medical and clinical settings, and can accommodate a range of theoretical orientations and therapeutic techniques.
 
Mental health professionals have reported that CAMS has given them a way to confidently treat suicidal patients effectively, and patients have reported they like using CAMS.
 
The Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality ("CAMS") is recognized by the Joint Commission, the Surgeon General, Zero Suicide and the CDC as one of a handful of evidence-based treatments.  It is "Well Supported" by CDC criteria.
 
Training Format:  Training consists of online coursework, training via Zoom, and consultation calls.  Participants must complete the training within a year of registration.
