Responding to Suicidal Thoughts: Double-storying Hope and Despair

Angel Yuen MSW RSW
presented by Narrative Therapy Centre

10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Eastern Time

When having conversations with people experiencing suicidal thoughts, narrative practitioners endeavor to richly acknowledge despair while also being on the lookout for people’s skills in living.

In this workshop, Angel Yuen will share stories and wisdom of those who have experienced suicidal thoughts and their skills and knowledges of coming out of dark times.

During this online workshop together we will:

discuss some of the limitations of mainstream suicidology
learn how externalizing practices can help to widen space between the person and hopelessness/despair/suicidal thoughts
honour multiplicity and complexity of suicidal thoughts in ways that do not pathologize distress
consider an alternative framework for conversations about suicide
practice narrative lines of enquiry that create openings to subordinated stories in the shadows

About the facilitator…

Angel works as a narrative therapist and clinical supervisor in alternative-private practice in Durham region of the Greater Toronto Area. She also offers tailored narrative trainings and consultation to many organizations. Angel’s previous work spanning three decades included experiences in school, community, and adult and children’s mental health settings.

Angel has facilitated several narrative workshops locally, internationally and more recently virtually. Within these spaces she continually is honoured to share hopeful stories, skills and wisdom of the people who consult with her. As a member of the Dulwich Centre international faculty in Adelaide, Australia Angel is part of their team for the Master of Narrative Therapy and Community Work program. Angel is the author of the 2019 book titled’ Pathways beyond despair: Re-authoring lives of young people through narrative therapy. She also is co-editor with Cheryl White of the 2007 book Conversations about gender, culture, violence and narrative practice: Stories of hope and complexity from women of many cultures.
