Register for the Soul Shop workshop on Thursday 9/14, 8:30 am – 4:00 pm at American Lutheran Church 631 26 ½ Rd.

Four local congregations have teamed up to provide this one-day training to equip youth pastors, youth leaders, camp directors/counselors, social workers, school guidance counselors, and other youth workers to minister to youth impacted by suicidal desperation. Special attention will focus on youth specific issues of impulsivity and contagion.  The training includes the creation of resources, training congregation and community members in suicide awareness and basic conversation skills, and the invitation to those who have been suicidal in the past to share their stories.
