Learn how to prevent, spot, and deal with Self-Harm in LGBTQ+ youth

Self-Harm Awareness Workshop for Parents, Caregivers, and Teachers of LGBTQ+ Youth Learn from a nationally certified school psychologist, who is also LGBTQ+.

While we hate to talk about it, self-harm in our teens right now is real and pervasive. Because of the stigma, there's not a lot of readily available information for parents, caregivers, and teachers. This workshop hopes to change that.

We will meet with Megan Pulvermacher. Megs, as she's known to her friends, has 10 years of experience working as a Nationally Certified School Psychologist. In this role, she supports students, educators, and families in identifying and meeting students' academic, social-emotional, and mental health needs, as well as building capacity in fellow educators to create more inclusive & safe educational settings for LGBTQ+ students and employees.

Megs will teach us:

  • myth vs. reality. What do the stats have to say regarding self-harm and our LGBTQ+ teens?
  • Ask. If we suspect our teen is dealing with self-harm issues, either personally or through peers, what are some questions we can ask to break the ice and get the information we need?
  • Listen. How can we uplevel our parenting skills and listen to their responses without having our own inner agenda?
  • Plan. How do we prevent self-harm in the future? How do we find the resources our child needs? Is 911 our only option in a crisis?

Then, there will be time for Questions and Answers with the audience!

This is your chance to pick the brain of a Nationally Certified Psychologist who works with teens every day!
