Little Cub is a 1-day, discussion-based workshop examining suicide prevention in Indigenous children and communities.
The Little Cub Workshop draws heavily on storytelling and oral tradition. It begins by recognizing the unique precipitating factors of suicide in Indigenous communities and moves through to identifying risk and protective factors in children 12 years of age and younger. The workshop finishes by empowering participants with knowledge and tools to transfer the care of a child at risk of suicide to a community-based resource person.
It is recommended that participants of this workshop also attend the 2-day ASIST workshop for skills-based suicide intervention training.
Workshop Topics include:
- Story of Indigenous Experiences
- Conversations and Understanding
- Protective and Risk Factors
- Responding with Hope
- Understanding More
This workshop provides information and offers practical approaches for those working with Indigenous children who may be at risk of suicide. The precipitating factors of suicide are different in Indigenous communities than in the general population.
Information provided is appropriate for beginner and intermediate social work practice.
All participants will receive a participation certificate upon completing 7 hours of instruction.
