Event description

Description

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 and simulations provide opportunities to apply what is learned. A brief screening tool guides helpers to determine risk and make appropriate referral connections. A helper tool teaches how to organise and summarise the available information about a given child in a form that can be used by someone, perhaps the participants themselves, in safety planning.

Learning objectives
The desired learning outcomes of The "ASK" WorkshopTM are that participants will:

  • recognise 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 their need for help;
  • recognise 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;
  • recognise the need to enlist the support of others to develop a plan for safety;
  • understand and be able to meet common challenges in working with parents to facilitate safety.
