This full-day training teaches therapeutic engagement, risk assessment, safety planning, identification and responding to youth with appropriate interventions. We will share the most current research around youth suicide risk assessment, as well as solution-focused interventions in the area of clinical intervention. One of the primary goals of the training will be to build therapeutic skills to aid in reducing risk over time. This workshop is for anyone working with youth in a mental health or counselling role.
