Suicidal behaviour in children age 12 or younger is a subject of growing concern for those who work with children. Suicidal thoughts and attempts in children have sometimes been overlooked, denied or ignored. Tattered Teddies is an interactive half-day workshop which examines warning signs in a child and explores intervention strategies through stories and case studies.
Intervention approaches build on the skills taught in the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) as they apply to children.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Appreciate that children can experience suicide ideation;
- Identify protective factors, risk factors and warning signs in children; and
- Confidently transfer care of a child to a caregiver (including but not limited to a parent, guardian, professional, or community resource).
