The subject matter shifted seamlessly through Understanding Hidden Hurts (session 1), Critical Skills for Tackling the Tough Stuff (session 2) and Successful Response Strategies (session 3).
I lifted some of this stuff as a teaser:
- Do you need an effective strategy for responding to a hurting kid? Listen, Invest, Validate, Explore (LIVE).
- What must a kid-helper keep in mind when helping a hurting kid? Confidentiality, Enlist Help, Mandatory Reporting, Don't be Stupid.
- The Core recommends some online resources: Celebrate Recovery, Be Broken Ministries, RSA Ministries, National Eating Disorders, Mirror Mirror, Help Guide, To Write Love On Her Arms, National Self-Harm Network, Self-Injury, Abuse & Trauma Resource Directory, Teen Health Center, Self-Injury Information and Support, American Association of Suicidology, Kristin Brooks Hope Center, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
