The work you do can be challenging. These live online sessions provide a safe, non-threatening space for professionals to connect with others who have also worked with clients who have attempted or died by suicide.
Led by Nathalie Cyr, a Master Trainer for Livingworks’ Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training, and David Prescott, a mental health practitioner with four decades of experience, these online sessions will provide you with a rich, meaningful experience in a supportive environment.
In each session, we will explore subjects that are meaningful to the participants, such as:
- Navigating systemic issues that arise in the wake of a client’s suicide.
- Coming to terms with the impact of suicide on one’s self and the client’s loved ones.
- Regaining one’s confidence after suffering a significant loss.
- Moving forward professionally.
- The importance of self-care and advocating for oneself.
To ensure that each session is workable, we will limit the number of attendees. Registration for each session will, therefore, be on a first-come-first-served basis. We are charging a non-refundable fee of $8.00 to reserve your spot.
Your personal privacy is our highest priority. These sessions will be recorded for liability purposes only. The recordings will not be shared with attendees or distributed outside of Safer Society Foundation.
Like any group discussion, everyone will have a responsibility to keep it a safe, professional, and confidential space. We will adhere to the codes of ethics of our professions, mandatory laws, and other professional standards. The Safe Haven series is intended to be supportive; not formal supervision, consultation, or legal advice.
