Course Details

This workshop provides community service workers with the appropriate skills and knowledge to provide sensitive and effective intervention where risk of self-harm or suicide has been identified.

The focus is on identifying and managing any immediate suicide risk in the context of a supportive helping relationship that seeks to work collaboratively with the person at risk to achieve safe outcomes.

Safe outcomes in this context include a clear safety plan for addressing any immediate danger to the person at risk or others and mobilising access to emergency medical help when needed and facilitating links with further care.

This workshop is contextualised to meet the needs of Aboriginal SEWB Workers and non-Aboriginal people currently working in a job role that involves working with Aboriginal clients who may present as at risk of suicide.

Following the workshop, individuals will have completed the course CHCCS521B Assess and respond to individuals at risk of suicide. This workshop is presented in partnership with Centacare Catholic Family Services and is open to Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people working in the SEWB field.
