9 A.M. – 4 P.M.
In an effort to stem the rising tide of suicide in the area, CareNet Counseling, Inc. and CareNet Counseling East are bringing Soul Shop to our community. Soul Shop is a suicide prevention training program and includes a daylong training session specifically designed to train church leaders, clergy, program staff, lay ministers, office staff and faith-based therapists to detect the signs of someone contemplating suicide and possibly save their life. Additionally, Soul Shop trains church and community leaders how to minister to surviving family members after a suicide.
Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Describe the incidence and impact of suicidal desperation on the adults and youth in their faith communities (and realms of work/influence).
- Demonstrate a simple, conversational method for saving the life of someone considering suicide.
- Address suicidal desperation as a regular aspect of their life and work.
- Engage leaders in an ongoing, strategic effort to shift the way that faith communities deal with suicide.
