Soul Shop™ for Youth Workers is a one-day, faith-based training designed specifically to equip persons to minister to youth who are impacted by suicidal desperation. Since 17% of youth are seriously considering suicide and 10% of youth will attempt suicide before age 30, Soul Shop™ for Youth Workers is essential training for anyone who ministers to youth in a paid or unpaid capacity. Special attention is focused on youth-specific issues of impulsivity, contagion, and confidentiality. The training lays a Scriptural foundation for ministering to suicidal desperation among youth, and also includes how to recognize warning signs, how to engage in life-saving conversations, and how to keep youth safe. In addition, Soul Shop™ for Youth Workers provides practical ways to integrate this ministry into lesson plans, group activities, and one-on-one conversations.
