Event description

Description

APPLIED SUICIDE INTERVENTION SKILLS TRAINING (ASIST)

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is the standard training experience for suicide prevention in our community, presented in collaboration with LivingWorks.

About the Course

ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first-aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may be at risk of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop—ASIST can be learned and used by anyone.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the workshop, participants will be better able to:

  • Identify people who have thoughts of suicide.
  • Understand how beliefs and attitudes can affect suicide interventions.
  • Understand a person at risk’s story about suicide as well as recognize turning points that connect the person to life.
  • Conduct a safety assessment and develop a plan that will keep the person at risk safe for now.
  • Confirm the person at risk’s faith in the safe plan and their intent to follow it through.

Target Audience

All caregivers, formally designated or not; adults and youth 16+.
