Managing Suicide Risk Collaboratively: The CAMS Framework
Setting the Stage
Together with CAMS developer David A. Jobes, Ph.D., ABPP, you will work to apply the CAMS Framework with a Kevin O’Leary, a fictional patient at high risk for suicide. Unit Two sets the stage before you begin working with Kevin with Dr. Jobes, so you’re more familiar with CAMS. In Unit Two you’ll learn about building a strong therapeutic alliance with your suicidal patient, and what CAMS offers to help you do so. You’ll also be introduced to the CAMS Suicide Status Form, or SSF, a multipurpose roadmap that guides you and your patient through CAMS clinical care.
