Details: Designed specifically for social service professionals in non-clinical settings, this session features strategies to help prevent veterans’ death by suicide. Because there is no single cause of suicide, there is no single strategy to prevent it. However there are things human resource professionals can do in their daily interactions with veterans to help prevent or modify suicidal thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Participants in this interactive, hands-on session will learn how making the following topics part of their organizational culture can help reduce veterans’ suicidal ideation.

Objectives: 1. Self-efficacy, a major contributor to success in learning and managing life skills. 2. Resiliency, the ability to overcome obstacles and rebound from setbacks. 3. Resolving ambivalence. 4. Positive psychology (Appreciative Inquiry, Mindset and Grit)
