Event description

Description

Name of course: Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

Date: This is a two-day course 16 November and 17 November

Price: £80 per person (including VAT) for the full two days.  £60 per student (with a student card number)

Who it’s for: everyone 16 or older—regardless of prior experience—who wants to be able to provide suicide first aid. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop—ASIST can be learned and used by anyone. The ASIST model teaches effective intervention skills while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community.

Information about the course: ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first-aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.

Virtually anyone age 16 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, can become an ASIST-trained caregiver. Developed in 1983 and regularly updated to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice, ASIST is the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop. During the two-day interactive session, participants learn to intervene and help prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop, and studies have proven that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings for those at risk.

 PLEASE NOTE: Participants MUST attend the two full days of training.

Workshop features:

•Presentations and guidance from two LivingWorks registered trainers

•A scientifically proven intervention model

•Powerful audiovisual learning aids

•Group discussions

•Skills practice and development

•A balance of challenge and safety

 

ASIST has saved and changed hundreds of thousands of lives around the world.
