Suicide Intervention Skills Workshop (SISW)

As counsellors or social workers, suicidal risk in your clients can bring about unexpected challenges you may be unfamiliar with.

In this workshop, you will:

Learn to identify personal beliefs and attitudes in suicide work.

Identify people who may be at risk of  attempting suicide,

Respond appropriately to a suicidal person using SOS Intervention Model,

Apply Suicide Risk Assessments, and

Connect clients to community resources/help available.
