Congregation's Task Force on
Youth Suicide, the program will
address both parents and stu-
dents about the reality and pre-
vention of teen-age suicide.
"We want to tell the kids, 'You
are not alone with these prob-
lems,' " said Ande Teeple, a con-
gregant who suggested the
temple hold the program.
The impetus came from Ms.
Teeple's experiences as a chap-
lain at Children's Hospital in De-
troit. Working in the emergency
room, she has encountered chil-
dren as young as 7 who at-
tempted to take their own lives.
She became curious about the
reasons a child would want to kill
`They feel they don't have any-
one to back them up," she said.
"They feel they have no one to
talk to or go home to."
Recognizing the potential need
in the teen-age population, Tem-
• ple Emanu-El's education de-
partment decided to formulate a
program to service both teens en-
tering high school and their par-
ents, said Rabbi Amy Brodsky,
the temple's education director.
The thrust of the workshops,
to be held Oct. 16 and 23, will
deal with building a teen-ager's
self-esteem, Rabbi Brodsky said.
The theory is the more self-es-
teem a child has been imbued
with, the better that child will be
able to cope with trying situa-
"We really want to give the
students the tools to deal with
the feelings they are having, the
problems they are having," said
Rabbi Brodsky. "We want them
to know there are things they can
do short of suicide."
Parents have been invited to
attend a workshop Oct. 16 in
Rabbi Amy Brodsky:
which Dr. Steven Goren, a psy-
chologist, will discuss ways to en-
hance a child's self-esteem.
In addition, Rabbi Lane
Steinger and Rabbi Brodsky will
participate in the program.
"In studying this topic, we
learned that people who commit
suicide generally lack self-es-
teem," Rabbi Brodsky said. " We
are trying to enhance it and do it
in a Jewish setting.
"Hopefully, we will get
through to the kids that there are
places for them to go in the Jew-
ish community as well as the sec-
ular community to deal with
these things," she said.
Ande Teeple is looking for a
modest return on her investment
in suggesting and helping to cre-
ate the program.
"I figure if this program helps
one kid, then it is worth it," she
