suicide to Hope
This recovery and growth workshop is primarily designed for clinicians and other professional helpers who work with persons previously at risk of and currently safe from suicide. One day in length, this workshop provides tools to help these helpers and persons with experience of suicide work together to develop achievable and significant recovery and growth goals.
During suicide to Hope (s2H), participants reflect upon their qualities as helpers—the beliefs, values, and attitudes they bring to the relationship. They also learn about various meanings of suicide experiences and discover the opportunities for recovery and growth they present. More specifically, suicide to Hope is structured around a three-phasePathway to Hope (PaTH) model. The Understanding Phase focuses on exploring and describing barriers to recovery and growth. This establishes a foundation for the Planning Phase involving the formulation of recovery and growth goals and plans. The Implementing Phase focuses on monitoring progress and reviewing the process. Clinicians and professional helpers who attend a s2H workshop learn how to use this model collaboratively with those they serve. The workshop is highly interactive with a mix of large group and small group discussion and simulations.
