ABSTRACT

Abstract Body

What Have We Learned in the ELLIPSE-project from Focus Group Interviews and Surveys with Social Work Students, Policeman and Clinical Psychologists in Hungary?
Based on quantitative and qualitative (focus group) research results, social work students and even clinical psychologists need more information and practical knowledge/training on communication skills to approach people in crisis, suicidal crisis, and cry for help behavior. Policemen (patrols) need a guideline or manual on communication with suicidal people and training on listening skills, negotiation skills, and more profound knowledge on psychopathology. Social work students consider themselves already "gatekeepers," although they learned only basic counseling skills starting from their second year of study, and in the last semester, they will learn Crisis intervention skills. Students think that self-help telephone applications could be helpful.
