Presentation Description

As is commonly understood, there is no such thing as a “bad child” merely “bad behavior.” Therefore, in this workshop, Corrie Sirota, Grief, Loss and Bereavement Specialist, will help participants focus on understanding the WHY behind children who act out and/or present with deviant behaviors ranging from anxiety to bullying. Through a combination of lecture and interactive exercises participants will learn a variety of strategies to address challenging behaviors. The presentation is seen through the lens of a Strength Based perspective. 


At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Participants will evaluate and explore the interaction between risk and protective factors when engaging a person at risk in a formal suicide assessment.

2. Participants will identify engagement strategies for a person at risk in suicide assessment and treatment planning to support symptom management.

3. Participants will assess the latest technology supporting suicide assessment and safety planning in order to evaluate the appropriateness and efficacy of utilizing technology to engage a person at risk.
