Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a vital two-day course developed by LivingWorks Education, that covers the following:
ASIST is a 2-day intensive, interactive and practice-dominated course designed to help individuals recognize the risk of suicide, and learn how to intervene to prevent the risk of suicidal thoughts from becoming suicidal behaviors. Suitable for all persons in positions of trust: health professionals, social service workers, teachers, counselors, youth workers, police and correctional staff, and community volunteers. Prepared caregivers can help prevent suicide. Includes a Suicide Intervention Handbook and a certificate.
“I am utilizing the skills learned at ASIST training very often and I am grateful to have been taught these skills! I have used them (in serious situations) at least 3 times since training and I am grateful to have been capable to handle the situation with such a calm manner because I actually felt confident doing so. Thank you again for running such an amazing event. These skills are very practical in whatever field of study and I am shocked not more people have taken it!” –ASIST Participant
