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;
-recognize the need to enlist the support of others to create safety.

Participants of The “ASK” Workshop leave better equipped to reduce the risk of suicide and enlist help for young children.



WORKSHOP PROCESS:
The “ASK” Workshop successfully blends a variety of teaching and learning modalities including mini-lecture, Socratic dialogue, video, small group work, and case studies. Led by one facilitator, from 12 to 36 participants can comfortably work through the material together.
