Event description

Description

OVERVIEW:
This one-day workshop challenges commonly held notions about childrens’ capacity to consider suicide. It facilitates awareness of the signs that a young child may be at risk and what is needed to help. Case studies provide opportunities to apply what is learned, a helper tool teaches how to organize and summarize the available information about a given child in a form that can be used by someone, perhaps the participants themselves, in safety planning.

Participants are typically helpers who routinely come into contact with children age 5-14. While not required, prior completion of safeTALK or ASIST is recommended.



WHAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE:

A research based definition of suicidality in children
How a child’s understanding of death is linked to suicide risk

  • Key questions helpers need to ask a child to assess risk
  • Learn through lecture, discussion, video, case studies
  • Personality traits commonly seen in children at risk
  • How to talk with a child about death and suicide
  • How to align with parents and others who can create safety



LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
The desired learning outcomes of The “ASK” Workshop are that participants will:

-recognize how a child’s understandings of death and suicide may be implicated in risk;
-become aware of the ways children at risk of suicide communicate the need for help;
-recognize factors that may increase suicide risk and those that may mitigate it;
-know how to work with both in order to formulate the basis of a plan for safety;
