Webinar recording | Conflict resolution and suicide management: two sides of the same coin?
with Melanie Schroder
pre-recorded | Online
As people who manage or resolve conflict, the world we work in is a complex, diverse and ever- changing space. Our clients are in a particularly vulnerable state given the impact of conflict, the stress, distress, and often financial impacts of where they find themselves. Relationship breakdown and financial distress have been identified as two of the most significant risk factors for suicidal ideation.
In this presentation we discussed how suicide intervention has changed in the last couple of years, how motivational interviewing can be beneficial when working with suicidal clients, and how safety planning has become client driven.
Melanie discussed the CALM model of suicide intervention, share the journey in developing the model, the training packages through which this information can be shared and the apps which support this model.
Recognising anybody who may be vulnerable to suicidal ideation or thoughts, this could be your clients, your colleagues, your loved ones, or yourself, we learned about signs, strategies, and models to support keeping all safe from suicide.
