Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
Saturday, February 8th & Sunday, February 9th
9:00am - 4:30pm both days
The aim of ASIST is to help caregivers become ready, willing and able to provide emergency first-aid to persons at risk of suicidal behavior. During the two-day workshop, participants will examine their attitudes about suicide, learn how to effectively recognize and estimate the risk of suicide, and develop new and/or reinforce existing intervention skills.
ASIST is by far the most widely used, acclaimed and researched suicide intervention skills training in the world.
The workshop prepares caregivers to competently intervene with a person at risk of suicide. Caregivers master suicide first aid for reasons similar to those for learning CPR heart saver or basic physical first aid. Advanced skills can then be layered on with ASIST providing a common foundation.
A certificate is given to all participants who complete the full workshop.
You must complete both days to be certified.
