Sui­ci­dal be­hav­iour in chil­dren age 12 or younger is a sub­ject of grow­ing con­cern for those who work with chil­dren. Sui­ci­dal thoughts and at­tempts in chil­dren have some­times been over­looked, de­nied or ig­nored. Tat­tered Ted­dies is an in­ter­ac­tive half-day workshop which ex­am­ines warn­ing signs in a child and ex­plores in­ter­ven­tion strate­gies through sto­ries and case stud­ies.
