After six biennial conferences in the Swiss Alps, the Aeschi group will hold its fourth and final North American conference at the world-class Sonnenalp Hotel in the Colorado Rockies. The conference will be built around a series of videos illustrating key concepts in narratives, assessment and treatment of patients at risk for suicide. National and international experts acting as teachers and discussants will engage in intimate and probing exchanges about relating Aeschi concepts to the clinical material in the videos. Participants will be limited to 120 to preserve the collegial and safe atmosphere that has characterized all Aeschi conferences.
