Suicide To Hope is a course created by Living Works - https://www.livingworks.net/programs/suicide-to-hope/ - designed to support recovery after a suicide attempt.
It is ideal for clinicians and other professional helpers who are, or would like to be, involved in ongoing suicide care for people, once they are safe. It assumes that participants are familiar with suicide intervention and can provide suicide first aid. While LivingWorks’ ASIST is not a prerequisite, it is recommended as one way to learn suicide first aid and provides background for suicide to Hope’s learning processes and tools.
PURPOSE: Strengthen hope by aiding recovery and growth in persons with previous suicide experiences who are currently safe.
POSITIONING: Provide a sequel to suicide first-aid training that complements and enhances management, treatment and therapy by framing them within a recovery and growth perspective.
The workshop’s goal is to encourage and enable participants to apply a recovery and growth oriented approach to working with persons previously at risk and currently safe from suicide. Through interactive learning and practice, participants will learn to:
- Reflect on their qualities as helpers—the beliefs, values and attitudes they bring to the helping relationship—and how these impact on the effectiveness of their work
- Describe key features of a hope-oriented, recovery and growth approach to suicide;
- Understand a framework for finding and exploring recovery and growth opportunities in suicide experiences; and
- Apply a Pathway to Hope (PaTH) model for setting and working toward recovery and growth goals.
