Description

Soul Shop Hawai'i 2019: Ministering to Suicidal Desperation is a one-and-a-half day training to equip community leaders, clergy, faith and lay leaders, counselors, first responders, and essentially anyone interested in learning how to effectively minister to suicidal desperation.

Soul Shop is a national movement focused on helping communities develop skills for the prevention of suicide. Soul Shop has conducted hundreds of workshops throughout the United States and was hosted in Hawaiʻi in 2016 for community, church, and temple leaders of all denominations.

Suicidal desperation is complex and often involves a spiritual crisis, as well as emotional distress. It is difficult for those contemplating suicide to ask for help, and that is why Soul Shop has developed techniques for recognizing people who are hurting and helping them to be heard through life-saving conversations.

For Youth Leaders:

On Friday, October 18, 2019, 6 pm to 9 pm, there is a half-day Youth Leaders workshop. You will learn how to recognize warning signs; how to engage in life-saving conversations; and how to keep youth safe. Special attention is focused on youth-specific issues of impulsivity, suicide contagion, and confidentiality. Includes light refreshments.

For Community, Clergy, and Lay Leaders:

On Saturday, October 19, 2019, 9 am to 4 pm, there is a one-day Community and Faith Leaders workshop. You will learn about the primary obstacles to dealing with suicidal desperation (stigma, fear, and shame); statistics/facts about suicide; and how you can create a supportive environment while fundamentally altering the way people deal with this subject and one another. Registration includes light refreshments and bento lunch.
