Event description

Description

The primary aim of supporting the suicidal person is to engender a sense of hope and inviting the person to live

Identifying suicide risk is only one part of working with the suicidal person. The increasing demand on mental health services means that front line workers are often having to provide ongoing support for those assessed as not being in imminent danger of suicide. A recent Coroner's finding has highlighted the need for counsellors in private practice, NGO mental health support organisations and front-line health and social services to be up to date in their competency and capability to engage with the suicidal client and to have good referral processes in place.

Workshop participants will explore a model of engagement, support and safe containment. This model can be applied to any counselling, psychotherapeutic or support model.The Custodians of Hope model involves the following steps:

  • Illumination

  • Interrupting the suicidal thought

  • Invitation to Live

  • Custodian of Hope

  • Anchoring

  • Restoring of Wairua

  • Strategies for coping

This workshop is of value for those working in counselling or social support settings who have a basic understanding of counselling and/or mental health support/ recovery principles and processes. While the workshop is focused primarily around non-mental health settings, the workshop content is also relevant to workers in mental health settings.

Topics covered

  • The phenomenon of suicide

  • The suicidal moment

  • Key principles in engaging and supporting the suicidal person

  • Custodian of hope model

  • Coping planning vs safety planning

  • Safe practice: Keeping the suicidal person safe physically, emotionally and culturally

  • Including whānau and significant others as part of the support team

  • Legal obligations and implications - Duty of Care, Confidentiality, Privacy Act
