ASIST 11 Workshop English - 2 Day
Crisis Connections is proud to offer the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), an internationally recognized workshop using evidence-based best practices. ASIST provides practical training for caregivers of all kinds including first responders, mental health professionals, teachers, social workers, community volunteers, or anyone concerned about family or friends.
The emphasis of the ASIST workshop is on suicide first aid, on helping a person who has thoughts of suicide keep safe for now and to develop a safe plan that works for them. Like CPR, training in suicide intervention develops skills on how best to support a person with thoughts of suicide.
Learn how to:
Recognize invitations for help
Reach out and offer support
Review the risk of suicide
Apply a suicide intervention model - Pathways for Assisting Life
Link people with community resources
ASIST uses many different teaching processes to create a practice-oriented and interactive learning experience. Evaluations have shown that the workshop increases caregivers’ knowledge and confidence to respond to a person with thoughts of suicide, that intervention skills are retained over time, and that they are put to use to save lives.
