Straight Talk is an interactive half-day workshop created for individuals working with youth aged 12 to 18.
Straight Talk encompasses the developmental, cognitive, and emotional differences found within this age group in presenting strategies to strengthen the protective factors of youth at risk of suicide. Relevant intervention strategies are explored through videos and case studies.
Intervention approaches build on the skills taught in the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) as they apply to youth.
Ages 18+. This workshop will benefit any adult working with youth aged 12 – 18.
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.
