About this event

About the session:

This webinar will explore issues of risk in the clinical setting: it's identification, assessment and management. Dr Richard Haslam, consultant psychiatrist at the Maudsley Hospital in London, will talk about approaches that can help us conceptualise risk and how we might manage it.

Case studies will be discussed with a ProblemShared therapist to help highlight these often complex and challenging themes.

Richard will be talking about:

  • Approaches to risk identification and assessment
  • 'Tolerating' risk in the therapeutic environment
  • Spectrum of risk including deliberate self-harm and eating disorders
