Soul Shop™ for Leaders is a one-day, faith-based training workshop designed specifically to equip clergy, church members, faith-based counselors, and community leaders to recognize and address suicidal desperation as a regular part of their life and work. While much of the Soul Shop material is directed to leaders within the faith community, it is also highly relevant for licensed professional counselors, social workers, and other mental health professionals.
This intensive one-day training may also be of benefit to school administrators, counselors, and teachers, as well as first responders, law enforcement officers, and other members of the community, who have been impacted by suicidal desperation or who have lost a loved one to suicide.
How to talk to and minister to a person contemplating suicide is addressed with interactive practical exercises.
