this is not a certification course- it's an opportunity for folks to gather and share what we know about supporting our loved ones in a structured and facilitated way.
workshop is offered on a sliding scale- $15-50 - payment will be collected when you register online. If you would like to register, but prefer to pay cash, please contact Brooke.email@example.com. If you would like to attend but it costs too darn much, please contact Brooke.firstname.lastname@example.org
some of the questions we will be exploring include- what are my beliefs about suicide, and how might those impact how i react to someone else feeling suicidal? how do i know if someone i care about is thinking about ending their life? is suicidal thinking always an emergency? what if the emergency services that exist don't feel like safe options? how do i know what my boundaries are, and how do i talk about them with someone in crisis?
***can't make this time but are interested? i'll be doing this workshop again. if you want to be kept in the loop, email me. ♥ email@example.com
about the facilitator, in the words of Carly -
i'm a 32 year old white settler and a queer and genderqueer witch, with 17 years of facilitation and workshop creation experience. i'm also a trauma survivor and an anxious introvert. she or they pronouns plz.
my approach to suicide intervention is based on a combination of formal training and lived experience. i believe strongly in approaches that foreground body autonomy, kindness, harm reduction, and boundaried vulnerability. i am critical of institutions (hospitals, policing, social services), while sometimes participating in them in various ways. i have done front line peer based support work with queer and trans youth and with survivors of sexual violence for more than a decade, and informal support p much my whole life.
