Suicidal behaviour in children age 12 or younger is a subject of growing concern for those who work with children. Suicidal thoughts and attempts in children have sometimes been overlooked, denied or ignored. Tattered Teddies is an interactive half-day workshop which examines warning signs in a child and explores intervention strategies through stories and case studies.
Intervention approaches build on the skills taught in the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) as they apply to children.
Ages 18+ This workshop provides information and offers practical approaches for those working with children who are working with children who are age 12 or younger and who may be at risk of suicide.
Participants can include but not limited to: parents and caregivers; family and friends; natural helpers and advisors; educators and ministers; health practitioners; justice, law enforcers, emergency workers, and community volunteers.
All participants will receive a participation certificate upon completing 4 hours of instruction hours.
The fee for Small Talk is $100.
