The Early Identification & Recognition Program on behalf of the suicide prevention coalition of Cattaraugus County is pleased to announce the Lifelines Postvention Training; a free one day training for school-based response to suicide and sudden tramuatic death. This one day training helps school crisis teams review current procedures for suicide and other traumatic deaths in the school community. The strategies presented are designed to respect the critical role of the school in the recovery process and provide support, control, and structure to maintain order while assisting in the grieving process of school community members. School staff members who have a key role to play in responding to a death by suicide or other sudden death: administrators, pupil assistance coordinators, nurses, school counselors, social workers, and other appropriate staff are encouraged to attend. Folks from surrounding counties are more than welcome to attend as well. The training is on Wednesday November 7th, 2012 from 8AM-3PM at the Seneca Nation of Indian's Grand Hall in the Lionel R. John Health Center. Please see the attached flier for more information. For any questions, or to register please contact Meghan Monahan at 716-701-3315 or mcmonahan [at] cattco [dot] org
