Talking with your teen about suicide and self-harm (for parents of teens)

This workshop will offer support for caregivers on how to talk with their teens about suicide and self-harm. Caregivers who attend this workshop will learn about the common signs that their teen is thinking about suicide, the factors that can increase (and those that can lower) suicide risk, why teens self-harm, and what to do in crisis situations.

In the spirit of talking openly about suicide and self-harm, there will be an opportunity at the end of this workshop for caregivers to address and specific questions to the presenters.


When: Thursday, Oct. 15; 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Presenters: Gwyneth Hodgins, MSW, RSW, Rebecca Hsiang, MA, RP

Supporting young children emotionally through trying times
(for families/parents of children aged 3 to 8)

Families everywhere have been learning to live a whole new reality. As time goes on, many may feel that it's hard to continue holding things together. How about the little ones? How do we know exactly what their experience of this difficult time might be? What do we do when they start hitting the roof? In this workshop, we will explore ways of supporting young children (and their caregivers) with their big feelings.

When: Tuesday, Oct. 27; 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Presenters: Trina Rosenzweig, RECE, Lisa Ihnat, MA, RP

Webinar will be run on a videoconferencing platform.
