Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
June 6, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
ASIST is a two-day workshop facilitated by two trainers. The emphasis is on teaching suicide first-aid to help a person at risk stay safe and seek further help as needed. The learning process is based on adult learning principles and highly participatory. Graduated skills development occurs through mini-lectures, facilitated discussions, group simulations, and role plays.
By the end of the presentation, the participant will be able to:
- Assess the ways that personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions
- Describe the intervention needs of a person at risk of suicide
- Create an understanding of the impact that attitudes can have on the intervention process
- Present a model for effective suicide intervention
- Provide participants with the knowledge and skills to recognize risk and develop SafePlans to reduce the risk of suicide
- Develop skills through observation and supervised simulation experiences in large and small groups
- Generate information about resources in the local community
- Generate a commitment by participants to transform local resources into helping networks, creating shared language in suicide prevention/intervention
