Suicide Training Overview
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day workshop designed for all community members. Shown by major studies to significantly reduce suicidality, the ASIST model teaches effective suicide intervention skills while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community. This suicide prevention training will enhance a person’s ability to assist a person at risk of suicide. ASIST enhances skills to intervene until either the immediate risk of suicide is reduced or additional life-assistance resources can be found.
The training is divided into four learning modules: attitudes, knowledge, intervention and resources. Skills and principles are illustrated with case studies, presented in videos, role-play simulations, discussions, and the Suicide Intervention Handbook. Developed by LivingWorks Education, inc., the workshop prepares Suicide First Aid Caregivers to integrate intervention principles into everyday practice.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be better able to:
