***NEW RELEASE! LIVESTREAM ‘ASK’ WORKSHOP***
Working with the developers of this vital workshop, we are delighted to announce the release of the virtual Livestream version of this workshop.
The “ASK” Workshop (Assessing for Suicide in Kids) challenges commonly held notions about childrens’ capacity to consider suicide. It is the only suicide prevention workshop that specifically addresses suicide risk in children and gives participants developmentally appropriate strategies and tools to identify young children at risk of suicide and quickly gather and organize key details needed to assess risk and inform safety planning. Participants of The “ASK” Workshop are typically helpers who routinely come into contact with children ages 5-14.
Throughout the workshop there is opportunity to apply our learnings to case studies. The program includes self-paced online learning modules (approx. 1 hour, and must be done before the Livestream), and then two 4.5 hour segments of Livestream training facilitated over two consecutive days. All elements are packed full of information on the latest research and what it tells us about what youth and kids, 14 and younger, need from the adults in their lives to reduce risk factors for suicide, and increase protective factors.
Space is limited. All registered participants will receive an email with the self-paced online learning modules and a link to join the virtual session closer to the date.
