Critical Incident Stress Management:
Suicide Prevention, Intervention & Postvention
August 15-16, 2013
Sponsor: Denver Seminary CISM Team
Why do people kill themselves? How do I ask someone if they are feeling suicidal? What do I do if they say they ARE suicidal? How do I deal with the strong emotions suicide generates? This course will provide answers for these and other questions many crisis interventionists have about suicide. It will provide participants with basic information about suicide as well as help participants develop practical skills for prevention, intervention and postvention. Small group role-plays will allow participants to apply the suggested techniques as they are learned.
This course is open to anyone who wishes to learn more about intervening across the suicide spectrum. Professionals from the fields of Business & Industry Crisis Intervention, Disaster Response, Education, Emergency Services, Employee Assistance, Healthcare, Homeland Security, Mental Health, Military, Spiritual Care, and Traumatic Stress may all benefit. Helpful for church staff, ministers/clergy/chaplains and youth workers.
