suicide2HOPE is a recovery and growth workshop is primarily designed for clinicians and other professional helpers who work with persons previously at risk of and currently safe from suicide. One day in length, this workshop provides tools to help these helpers and persons with experience of suicide work together to develop achievable and significant recovery and growth goals.

Goals and Objectives

The workshop’s goal is to encourage and enable participants to apply a recovery and growth oriented approach to working with persons previously at risk and currently safe from suicide.

Participants will learn to:

  • Describe how suicide experiences provide an opportunity for recovery and growth work
  • Recognize how their Helper Qualities might impact recovery and growth work
  • Understand a schematic of common issues and related recovery and growth opportunities
  • Apply a model for setting recovery and growth goals; and a framework for monitoring and coordinating recovery and growth work
  • Why a recovery and growth approach?

​Recovery and growth approaches have demonstrated significant positive impacts in mental health, substance abuse, and trauma but have not been developed for use with those recovering from suicide. To meet this need, LivingWorks has developed suicide to Hope: a Recovery and Growthworkshop that provides clinicians and other professionals with skills to help persons previously at risk identify opportunities for recovery and growth arising out of their experiences with suicide.

Who should take suicide to Hope?

​suicide2Hope is primarily designed for clinicians and other professional helpers and assumes that participants already have some familiarity with suicide prevention and intervention helping work. The skills learned in the suicide to Hope workshop are designed to complement and enhance existing knowledge, helping approaches and experience, and are applicable to people in a wide variety of professional disciplines. They are intended to support clinicians and other professional helpers who work with persons previously at risk of and currently safe from suicide on a long-term basis beyond the first-aid emergency situation. LivingWorks’ two-day ASIST workshop is not a prerequisite for attendance, but is recommended as one way to learn the suicide intervention skills that are necessary for using suicide to Hope’s tools.
