Event Description

This one day workshop challenges commonly held notions about children’s capacity to consider suicide. It facilitates awareness of the signs that a young child may be at risk and what is needed to help. Designed for those working with kids between the ages of 5-14.

Some of the content of the “”ASK” workshop:

  • 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.

Price includes refreshments, lunch, materials, and certificate of completion.

Although not required, training in safeTALK or ASIST are highly recommended.
