Summer Institute 2022

Weaving Evidence-Based Happiness Interventions into Suicide Assessment & Treatment Planning
June 6th – June 7th

Please join us for this year’s Summer Institute featuring presenters Dr. John Sommers-Flannagan & Dr. Emily Salle from the University of Montana. This 2-day workshop you will assist you in building your skills for providing evidence-based suicide assessment and treatment. Using a strengths-based foundation, this workshop includes a critique of traditional suicide assessment, a review of an alternative assessment approach for determining “happiness potential,” and skill-building activities on how to use more nuanced and therapeutic approaches to assessment. Our presenters will also explore how to integrate evidence-based happiness and wellness strategies into suicide assessment, treatment, and professional self-care.
This conference will be happening IN-PERSON at MSU-Billings in the Glacier Room. This will be MASP’s first in-person conference since March of 2020. For further event details, check-out our Summer Institute 2022 brochure for lodging and tentative agenda information.
