Family Navigation for Suicide Risk
As a field, Suicidology offers a variety of trainings in assessing and treating individual risk for suicide. However, these trainings fail to integrate a family component. During assessment, family members can provide collateral information that allows a clinician to develop a richer picture of suicide risk. It is also important to assess how much family members contribute to suicide risk or present barriers both to receiving treatment and to treatment being effective. Family Navigation for Suicide Risk will cover a variety of topics needed for professionals to become Certified Family Navigators for Suicide Risk. Over 3 days, attendees will (a) learn how to conduct a suicide risk assessment and determine the appropriate level of response, (b) specific family factors affecting both youth and adult suicide risk, (c) how to consider a family component even when working with only the suicidal individual, (d) how to help families understand how they can best support their suicidal loved one. Lunch and Light Refreshments will be provided.

Mindfulness seminar
Emerging from meditative and contemplative traditions, mindfulness is increasingly used in Western psychology and medicine to alleviate an array of conditions. Mindfulness practices can help across a wide spectrum of issues from relationships issues, health issues, workplace effectiveness and reducing anxiety and depression. With the increased pace and often conflicting demands of practicing in the field of Mental Health we are subject to the effects of internal and external stress. Mounting evidence shows that mindfulness practice can reduce job burnout, anxiety, depression and stress, improve focus and empathy, and increase well-being for practitioner and patient alike. It can also provide an excellent conduit for self-care which has become a necessity and requirement for practicing in the field of Mental health, Social Work and Psychology. This workshop will provide a conceptual framework for mindfulness, a variety of tools and techniques for mindfulness practice, along with ample time for guided mindfulness practices, dialogue and Q&A. Therapists, Psychologists and Case Managers alike are welcome, including those new to the field.
