Event description

Description

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety.

Over the course of your two-day workshop, ASIST participants learn to:

  • Understand the ways that personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions

  • Provide guidance and suicide first aid to a person at risk in ways that meet their individual safety needs

  • Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it
  • Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large

  • Recognize other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care

Some of the learning will take place in the whole group of participants and some in smaller workgroups. You will learn and practice a model of suicide intervention. Your workshop trainers will be available to offer support and will work hard to create a learning atmosphere where participants can also encourage and support each other and have some fun.
