The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop is for caregivers who want to feel more comfortable, confident, and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. ASIST is a two-day intensive, interactive, and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers (any person over 15 in a position of trust) learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide and provide safety-for-now. Additional information, including CEU resources, is available http://www.livingworks.net.

NOTE

  • Participation in the full two days is required; any partial absences will result in participant having to retake course from the beginning.
  • Persons who have experienced recent suicide behavior or loss may find it helpful to wait until healing has occurred before taking this course. Sometimes personal experience gets in the way of learning to help others.
  • We aim to create a safe learning environment for all. Help is available 24/7 by calling 602-222-9444.
