Description

About the Course

ASIST is a two-day practical workshop developing skills through observation and supervised simulation in large and small groups. Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is intended as 'suicide first-aid' training. ASIST aims to enable helpers (anyone in a position of trust) to become more willing, ready and able to recognise and intervene effectively to help persons at risk of suicide.

This course is certificated, has an international profile and has been developed and refined by the Canadian organisations, LivingWorks for 25 years. More information on this course can be found at www.livingworks.net

What will I learn

Who is it for?
