Suicide is a topic that we aren't comfortable talking about until we have to.
Suicide is a topic that we aren’t comfortable talking about until we have to. It is a reality that does not discriminate; it doesn’t care who you are or what you do, it can affect anyone. Presented by an interpreter & sibling suicide loss survivor, this workshop will be an open honest conversation about what interpreters need to know about suicide: the facts, statistics, appropriate language (ASL & English), warning signs, risk factors, terminology, myths, and prevention. We will also talk about strategies for safely and effectively working with suicide loss survivors, attempt survivors, and individuals calling the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. Let’s talk.
1. Participants will identify various warning signs, risk factors, and protective factors for suicide
2. Participants will discuss current trends and statistics related to suicide and how this might impact the work they do
3. Participants will review common terminology related to suicide and discuss how it is accurate or inaccurate for the situation (in ASL and English)
4. Participants will discuss strategies for safely and effectively working with suicide loss survivors, attempt survivors, and individuals calling the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline
ASLIS virtual workshops are NOT recorded for later viewing.
