Instructor: Pamela Parkinson, PhD, LCSW

Location: Online via Zoom
Come to this training on understanding suicidal ideation with kids. This is going to be a training within the context of family because we need the larger team to keep kids safe. We are going to talk about why kids might choose suicide, things to look for, how we talk about it, ways to assess and how to keep kids safe! However, once kids are safe, our focus will shift to how do we keep them alive and having a future outlook that does not include seeing suicide as a viable option for managing their pain.
