Two-Day Suicide Prevention Training for Crime Victim Advocates (May 2019)

The Education Development Center is offering a series of suicide prevention train-the-trainer courses designed specifically for crime victim advocates who are not clinical mental health professionals. With funding support from the Office for Victims of Crime, the Center developed the HOPE curriculum (Notice Hints, Ask Openly About Suicide, Validate Pain, and Explore Reasons to Live).

In partnership with the Office for Victims of Crime, the Education Development Center (EDC) is providing a series of two-day suicide prevention trainings between May and August 2019 nationwide. The train-the-trainer courses are tailored to crime victim advocates who are not clinical mental health professionals.

Join the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) in observing National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) from April 7 to April 13. This year’s theme is Honoring Our Past. Creating Hope for the Future., which recognizes both the progress already made to date and the efforts of justice agencies, victim service providers, and other stakeholders to advance crime victim services that are inclusive, accessible, and trauma-informed.
