Navigating Suicide Risk in School-Aged Children: Strategies for Social Workers in Community-Based Settings

 

Preferred registration deadline: January 19th

3 CEUs

Adjunct Faculty, Brown School

Statistics tell us a sobering story about children’s risk of self-harming behaviors, and assessment tools can provide valuable insights about an individual child’s risk of a suicide attempt. But how does a school social worker (or other community-based professional) best approach day-to-day interactions when providing service to a child known to be at-risk?

This workshop will provide an overview of assessment tools currently in use. We will discuss strategies for effectively partnering with the person who is the primary mental health provider, when your role is not that of therapist. Participants will explore the importance of having a protocol in place for when a tragic event (of any sort) occurs inside your facility or otherwise impacts your community. Best practices for communicating with and supporting your team will also be discussed.

Class size is limited to 45.
