Hi Everyone! My name is Sharon Rosati and I am the School Social Worker at Red Creek Central

 

Welcome to my social work website!

 

Hi Everyone! My name is Sharon Rosati and I am the School Social Worker at Red Creek Central. I have had the pleasure of working in Red Creek since September 20013. As a social worker, I work with students on developing skills to help them cope with concerns that they may face. Individualized services may include short & long term individual counseling.  I can provide "push-in" classroom lessons to talk with an entire class about a topic of interest. Meetings and lessons with the School Social Worker can enhance self-esteem, interpersonal skills, and give students the opportunity to learn and practice positive behaviors.  Working with the School Social Worker helps students learn more about feelings, making good and safe choices, and about getting along with others.

 

Services are available to all students through parental, teacher or self-referral. I am also available to consult and talk with school staff and parents about various topics, and to provide resources and/or referrals if needed. Please contact me if you feel I may be able to help.

 

Please feel free to navigate through this website. Along the left side of the screen you will see several different links that you will hopefully find useful for your family. I would appreciate knowing if any of the links are not functioning.

 

Please note that I am in the office on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays this year but am available through email & voicemail every day.

 

Sincerely,

 

Sharon Rosati LMSW, ACSW

Seeking Veteran and Family Member Volunteers

Hi all,
Please see the opportunity below that seeks input from veterans and/or family members of veterans to participate in a project that will result in the development of a new resource to address the burden of suicide among veterans.

Seeking Veteran and Family Member Volunteers for Interviews regarding how best to involve family and loved ones in reducing Veteran Suicide Risk and promoting Lethal Means Safety
As part of the NYS Governors Challenge to prevent suicide among service members, veterans and their families (SMVF) a workgroup of mental health professionals across New York State have come together over a shared interest in learning about ways that family members can best help their Veteran remain safe and minimize access to things that Veterans might use to harm themselves when feeling overwhelmed. We are developing several strategies to promote family involvement in reducing access to lethal means and are seeking individuals who might be interested in participating in a 1:1 interview  to better understand what families need to know, and how best to support families in taking the necessary actions to make their family environment safer.

We are aiming to develop two projects for which we seek the opinions and perspectives of three groups of family members:
1) Family member of a Veteran with firearms in the home,
2) Family member of a Veteran with a past suicide attempt using a firearm,
3) Family member of a Veteran who died by suicide.

Our first project is the development of a training module delivered directly to family members that teaches critical information about lethal means safety, focusing on gun safety and medication management. For this project, we need feedback from you regarding past experiences with your Veteran's times of crisis and lessons learned from how best to minimize risk.  We also want to seek your preferences about how best to deliver and present this information in an engaging and helpful manner to family members.

Our second project aims to develop a brief intervention to support families and loved ones begin the discussion and action planning around lethal means safety. Here we want to hear from family members and Veterans which formats they favor and how best to facilitate the negotiation around taking action to better manage suicide risk with safer storage of medications and firearms.

We will also be interviewing Veterans with involved family  to understand their perspective on how best to speak to Veterans about lethal means safety. We recognize family discussions to make the home safer, are a two-way street and want to ensure we include all viewpoints in our products. Thank you for your time and support of these critically important projects.

If you know someone you believe might be interested in supporting this work, please contact Marianne Goodman MD at email: mggoodman2001@yahoo.com or phone: 646-245-7071. We are looking to conduct these interviews from January- February 2021.
Thank you!
