Suicide: Perspectives and InterventionDesignation: PACC 4063
Suicide is a devastating issue, both for those considering it, and for their friends and loved ones and community. This course will draw on current research, theological resources and historical perspectives to illuminate the complexity of the phenomenon and the means of care for those at risk of suicide and for those who have experienced the death of a loved one due to suicide. Issues of self-care for the pastoral caregiver will also be addressed. Students will participate in the nationally-accredited, two-day ASIST workshop (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills training) to equip participants to recognize, effectively intervene, and offer care to those considering suicide.
