In this episode of Better Thinking, Nesh Nikolic speaks with Dr Kirk Strosahl about an alternative approach when working with suicidal patients.

Dr Kirk Strosahl is a leading innovator in the field of clinical psychology, and in 2009 received an award for outstanding innovations in psychology from the American Psychological Association.

Dr Strosahl has a long-standing interest in developing an evidence-based model for assessing and treating suicidal behaviour and, together with colleague John Chiles MD, co-authored the book Clinical Manual for Assessment and Treatment of Suicidal Patients.

His empirically-based approach to treating suicidal behaviour has been adopted by many mental health systems of care, as well as practicing therapists. He continues to conduct workshops in this innovative approach in the US and internationally.
