CAMS-guided care is a philosophy of care and a therapeutic framework for suicide-specific assessment and treatment of a client’s suicidal risk. This is a flexible approach that can be easily integrated across treatment settings and in tandem with different treatment modalities. In CAMS-guided care the clinician and client collaborate in a highly interactive assessment process. Clinicians utilize client input and clients become the “Co-authors” of their own treatment plan. This course will provide you with the tools and resources you need to provide your best level of care. In each of this courses’ five modules, you will see Dr. Jobes, in video, as he integrates CAMS-guided care in a case study. Each module makes use of interactive E-learning and assessments, so you can check your knowledge gain. The CAMS course will provide learners with the unique opportunity to further support and understand the struggle of suicidal clients while keeping their perspectives ever at the forefront.
