I now have a clearer picture on how to approach suicide risk, how to carry out interventions structurally and what interventions there are, and overall how to adopt a more clinical view of suicide.

Easy to adapt and apply. Resources available for reference. Real life examples (video clisps + sound clips ) which is very useful for us to understand and clarify better.
