Assessing for suicide in kids - the 'ask' workshop
In just one day, Dr I Russel will teach you how to help a child at risk of suicide become a child with hope for life.
The ask workshop is a one-day, evidence-informed and highly interactive suicide prevention training.
Learn from informative video, mini-lectures, and group discussions. Apply and practice as you learn with case studies and guided simulations. Leave with tools and templates you can integrate into your practice immediately.
Children are not small adults, so why use approaches designed for adults to help a child? The ask workshop 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 organise key details needed to assess risk and inform safety planning.
Without help, children thinking of suicide may become teens who act on those thoughts.
In just one day, we can teach you what to look for, how to respond, and what to do, that can make a life-saving difference for a child at risk of suicide.
