Description:

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day intensive, interactive and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers recognize and review risk, and intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. It is by far the most widely used, acclaimed and researched suicide intervention training workshop in the world.
Learning Objectives
The goal of ASIST is to enhance a caregiver’s abilities to assist a person at risk to avoid suicide. By completing the workshop, participants will be able to:
Recognize that caregivers and persons at risk are affected by personal and societal attitudes about suicide;
Discuss suicide with a person at risk in a direct manner;
Identify risk alerts and develop a safe plan related to them;
Demonstrate the skills required to intervene with a person at risk of suicide;
List the types of resources available to a person at risk of suicide, including themselves; make a commitment to improving community resources and networking; and,
Recognize that suicide prevention is broader than suicide intervention and, includes life promotion and self-care for persons at risk and for caregivers.
