Course Director: J. Michael Bostwick, M.D.Brian A. Palmer, M.D., M.P.H.

After six biennial conferences in the Swiss Alps, the Aeschi group is holding its third North American conference at the world-class Sonnenalp Hotel in the Colorado Rockies. The conference is organized around a series of videos illustrating key concepts in the narratives, assessment and treatment of patients at risk for suicide. More than a dozen national and international experts teach and discuss cases, engaging in intimate and probing exchanges that relate Aeschi concepts to the clinical material in the videos. In order to preserve the collegial and safe atmosphere that has characterized all Aeschi conferences, the conference will be capped at 120 participants.
