Date: 24 Nov 2017

Room: Webinar

Time: 12-1pm PST

In this webinar, participants will be introduced to an innovative research and KT method involving visual imagery and narrative, which has been used to spark community dialogues on suicide prevention. Drawing on an example from Dr. Ferlatte's own research on suicide among LGBTQ2S people, this webinar highlights key considerations for researchers who want to effectively incorporate novel KT approaches into their work.
