Jewish Family Services of MetroWest New Jersey is sponsoring the workshop Preventing Suicide in Adolescents and Young Adults on Nov. 3 in West Orange.

Middle and high school counselors and teachers are invited to attend this workshop and learn how to:

  • Recognize barriers to engaging families in treatment, including adolescent resistance and methods to work through this resistance.
  • Identify and assess risk for suicide.
  • Distinguish between risk factors and warning signs.
  • Review the current models for conducting safety planning with suicidal youth.

Dr. Suzanne Levy, the director of training for the Attachment-Based Family Therapy (ABFT) program at Drexel University’s College of Nursing and Health Professions, will lead the workshop.
