Morris-Baker is known for bringing nationally recognized grief experts to the community and opening these events to the public for free as a public service. Our next one will be held September 26, 2017.
From Risk to Resilience: Suicide Prevention, Post-vention, Stress Management and Mindfulness
At any given time, situation or group, statistics tell us that 1 out of 20 people are thinking of suicide. Healthcare workers, students, therapists, teens, professionals of any type, and the latest group to show an increased risk (those aged 45-60) are likely to be thinking hopeless or suicidal thoughts and at risk for acting on those thoughts. It’s time to stop the silence and make our communities safer from suicide. A wide variety of tools and skills are necessary for a provider’s “tool box” to help caregivers with suicide prevention and post-vention with children, teens and adults.
This seminar is designed for professionals who wish to improve their suicide prevention, intervention and post-vention (follow-up care) skills, and help bereaved survivors and caregivers manage stress, improve mindfulness skills and foster resilience.
