suicide to HOPE (s2H) 1-day workshop for Clinician and Caregivers
suicide to Hope Workshop

This one day interactive workshop enables participants (clinicians and other caregivers) to apply a recovery and growth oriented approach to working with persons previously at risk and currently safe from suicide.

GOAL: This workshop’s goal is to strengthen hope by increasing the ability of helpers to hear, understand and work with the wants and needs of persons recovering from and growing through suicide.

As a result of participation in this workshop, participants will be able to:

Describe how suicide experiences provide an opportunity for recovery and growth work

Recognize how their Helper Qualities might impact recovery and growth work

Understand a schematic of common issues and related recovery and growth opportunities

Apply a model for setting recovery and growth goals as well as a framework for monitoring and coordinating recovery and growth work

PROCESS: During suicide to Hope (s2H), participants reflect upon their qualities as helpers—the beliefs, values, and attitudes they bring to the relationship. They also learn about various meanings of suicide experiences and discover the opportunities for recovery and growth that are connected to the meanings and experiences. More specifically, suicide to Hope is structured around a three-phase Pathway to Hope (PaTH) model. The Understanding Phase focuses on exploring and describing barriers to recovery and growth. This establishes a foundation for the Planning Phase involving the formulation of recovery and growth goals and plans. The Implementing Phase focuses on monitoring progress and reviewing the process. Clinicians and professional helpers who attend a s2H workshop learn how to use this model collaboratively with those they serve. The workshop is highly interactive with a mix of large group and small group discussion and simulations.

PREREQUISITES: ASIST certification is a highly recommended.
