Starting this week - Youth suicide workshops Akl Wgtn & Chch

International expert Dr Jonathan Singer is delivering a series of practical workshops about youth suicide and steps to implement better/safer practices within our communities, schools and learning establishments. He also looks at the role that technology can have in engaging with young people and supporting them to live great lives.

These workshops are underpinned by the latest international research, practical experience from many years working with young people and a career dedicated to improving practice worldwide.

Jonathan is President-Elect of the influential American Association of Suicidology – and is the author of the 2015 Suicide in Schools: A Practitioner's Guide to Multi-level Prevention, Assessment, Intervention, and Postvention.

Check out these workshops and see how your organisation can be a part of the solution to suicide.


Lives Worth Living - this powerful workshop provides a practical and up to date assessment of what we know about youth suicide in 2019 by one of the world's leading commentators on preventing youth suicide. Not only will participants learn about current theories of suicide and how those theories inform our work with suicidal youth, it will explore upstream prevention and the idea that we can save lives by identifying intervention moments before a suicide attempt or death.

Suicide in Schools - Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people 12 – 24 years. We believe we can change this! Schools are an ideal location to identify and respond to suicide risk. Because of the tension between the school’s educational mission and the socio-emotional demands of addressing suicide risk, school counselors often find themselves addressing suicidal crises without clear institutional guidance and support.

Suicide & Technology - Identifying, managing and responding to suicide risk in 2019 requires an understanding of the role of technology. This workshop will engage service providers in a thought-provoking discussion about websites, apps, and technologies that are used to increase and decrease suicide youth risk. We will talk about how and when social media use might increase the likelihood that youth will try to end their lives, and how social media can be used to increase connection and reduce suicide risk.
