The straight talking un-PC Guide to working with Suicidal Youth
Imagine, you are in your office. Other staff bring in a student with casts on both arms, hospitalised earlier in the week after a serious suicide attempt. His parents are with him. They are distraught. The student is glaring at you, swearing, yelling that all professionals are useless, and we just need to let him die. He has intent, an immediate plan, and determination.
Francis Jamieson, private practice Psychotherapist/Supervisor/Professional trainer, HOD Counsellor East Auckland School and author of “A Practical Guide to Working with Suicidal Youth, A New Zealand Perspective” 2013 presents a one-day workshop which will demonstrate the power of potent relationship building and the importance of this in keeping our suicidal tamariki safe and alive. An in-vivo role play will model style/interventions and strategies that promote the vital connection that is needed to change the minds of those determined to die by suicide – to seeing the point of living.
The workshop aims to model experiential psychotherapeutic techniques that can pull young people back from the brink. It focuses on what you as a therapist can do and how you can make the difference.
Your course fee includes a free PDF copy of the book “A Practical Guide to Working with Suicidal Youth, A New Zealand Perspective” F. Jamieson. 2013.
