Your voice matters. It's tough to stress just how important it is for you, as an ECE, to support your provincial association and have a voice on issues of importance to you. We depend on the size and strength of our membership to allow us to engage, plan and advocate for system changes and further public investment in the ELCC sector.
Small Talk is an interactive half-day workshop which examines warning signs in a child and explores intervention strategies through stories and case studies.
This workshop provides information and offers practical approaches for those working with children who are working with children who are age 12 or younger and who may be considering suicide.
Participants can include but not limited to: parents and caregivers; family and friends; natural helpers and advisors; educators and ministers; health practitioners; justice, law enforcers, emergency workers, and community volunteers.
Information provided is appropriate for beginner and intermediate social work practice.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Appreciate how a child’s developmental stage affects their concept of death and suicide;
- Identify protective factors, risk factors and warning signs in children; and
- Confidently transfer care of a child to a caregiver.
