Tutor Malcolm Hanson, an experienced HG practitioner, draws upon his wealth of experience as he walks you clearly through the essential steps to take when faced with someone who feels suicidal.

He worked for nine years as a psychotherapist in NHS primary care in an area of extreme deprivation, and has over many years seen patients referred by GPs, social workers, psychiatrists, police and probation officers for complex issues. He has helped clients experiencing multiple trauma, chronic pain and terminal illness, clients struggling with uncertain asylum status or facing deportation, and also victims of human trafficking – a tragic range of circumstances in which even the most resilient may sometimes sink into despair.

On this important workshop he will share what he has learned to give you the knowledge and assurance you need to work confidently and respectfully with clients struggling to find reasons to stay alive, building in expectation of positive change from the start.

You will also have plenty of time for group discussion and for working through a wide variety of case scenarios.
