Event Details


TuneUp is a half day (3.5 hours) refresher workshop for improving participant comfort, confidence, and competence in using the Pathway for Assisting Life or PAL. The purpose of the TuneUp is the consolidation and refinement of previous learning. Only for participants who attended ASIST 11. If you have taken older versions of ASIST (e.g ASIST 10.6) you cannot attend this course as we now only teach the newer model. We recommend participants take tune up at least every 2 years in order to maximise their care-giver competencies.

 

Who is it for?

TuneUp is for ASIST 11 participants who need a reinforcing, follow-up experience.

 

What are the course aims?

  • To reinforce the model of suicide intervention.
  • To revisit attitudes.
  • To share and explore participants' experiences of suicide interventions.
  • To explore resource and networking issues.

 

What are the teaching methods?

The course incorporates various teaching methods, including:

  • Presentations.
  • Discussion.
  • Small group work.
  • Interactive video learning.

 

What are the training outcomes?

Following the ASIST TuneUp course, you will be able to:

  • Better understand the ASIST intervention model.
  • Refine use of risk-review and safe-planning.
  • Increase awareness of the impact of attitudes on suicide first-aid.
  • Develop support networks for suicide intervention within and across organisations.

 

A TuneUp participant says...

"The course is a brilliant refresher. I left feeling more equipped to continue supporting people in crisis."

 

 

 

Getting to the Venue

 

The Centre is well served by the number 1/1A/21 buses (the St Cuthmans Church stop) and has a small car park with overflow on-street free parking. The building is next door to the St Cuthmans Church, and is made mainly from corrugated steel, with a large sign on the front saying “Café Open”. If entering from the street you need to go down some stairs to reach the entrance.

The course runs from 1.30pm to 5pm.  It is important you arrive promptly– we promise to finish on time!  We will have refreshment breaks during the session and refreshments will be provided.

Organiser

Grassroots Suicide Prevention

Grassroots Suicide Prevention delivers training that saves lives. Very few, if any of us, are untouched by suicide. We believe that suicide is a community health problem and that suicide can be prevented.

We promote and deliver ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training), a 2 day workshop that teaches a model of suicide first aid. 

We offer a range of training programmes to complement ASIST, including SafeTALK (Suicide Alertness), One in Four (Mental Health Awareness) and Self Injury (Understanding & Working with Self Injury).

 We are very happy to deliver courses in-house to your organisation; please ring or e-mail us to find out more.
