At any given time, situation or group, statistics tell us that 1 out of 20 people are thinking of suicide. Healthcare workers, students, therapists, teens, professionals of any type, and the latest group to show an increased risk (those aged 45-60) are likely to be thinking hopeless or suicidal thoughts and at risk for acting on those thoughts. It's time to stop the silence and make our communities safer from suicide. A wide variety of tools and skills are necessary for a provider's "tool box" to help caregivers with suicide prevention and post-vention with child, teens and adults.

In her work with grieving children, teens and their families, Michelle Post has experienced both effective prevention methods as well as post-vention to help survivors of a loved one who died from suicide.

Program Objectives: At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to ...



- Identify normal, age-appropriate grief responses for different developmental ages of children, teens, and adults.

- Identify "red-flag" grief responses that may indicate a need for a higher level of care and risk factors associated with potential suicide risk. 

- Make a clear ask about thoughts of suicide and engage in suicide prevention model



- Utilize age-appropriate post-vention activities to engage children, teens, and adults to help them begin the process of accepting the reality of the suicide death, processing emotions, coping, and memorializing.

- Employ an assessment tool to identify at least three symptoms of stress or compassion fatigue in clients, patients, their families or to detect stress in colleagues, staff or volunteers 

- Describe three interventions to manage stress or employ mindfulness interventions. Create a plan that can be taught to patients, their families, colleagues, staff or volunteers to manage stress, prevent burnout and improve coping with personal or professional grief. 0.6 CEUs
