Custodians of Hope: Supporting the suicidal person
THE PRIMARY AIM OF SUPPORTING THE SUICIDAL PERSON IS TO ENGENDER A SENSE OF HOPE AND INVITING THE PERSON TO LIVE
Identifying suicide risk is only one aspect of working with the suicidal person. The increasing demand on mental health services means that front line workers are often having to provide ongoing support for those assessed as not being in imminent danger of suicide.
A recent Coroner's finding has highlighted the need for counsellors in private practice, NGO mental health support organisations and front-line health and social services to be up to date in their competency and capability to engage with the suicidal client and to have good referral processes in place.
Workshop participants will explore a range of engagement, support and safe containment outcomes for supporting the suicidal person post the risk assessment process. These outcomes can be applied to any counselling, psychotherapeutic or support model. The outcomes are grouped into:
Manaakitanga, Anchoring, Kōrero, Anchoring, Illumination, Interrupting the suicidal thought, Invitation to Live, Custodian of Hope, Restoring of Wairua, Strategies for coping.
Rather than being another model, this approach builds on counselling and/or mental health support/ recovery principles and processes.
“Supportive approaches addresses those factors that distorts, depletes, or suppresses the suicidal person’s mauri / lifeforce, and reawakens the enablers that nurtures and sustains it and restoring of the person’s wairua.”
