Organiser: The OLLIE Foundation
Clinicians and other professional helpers know that encountering suicide is an inevitable and significant part of their work. However, many lack confidence for this role and feel inadequately prepared. suicide to Hope offers a unique training opportunity to improve helpers’ preparation to provide effective suicide care.
Workshop process and objectives
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.
Who should participate?
The workshop is 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.
