Just as CPR skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills needed for verbal suicide first aid. ASIST is a two-day (14 hours) intensive, interactive, and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers recognize risk and learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.
Learning Objectives:
By utilizing the above training processes throughout the ASIST workshop, participants are able to see, hear and learn the information and skills needed to provide suicide first aid. They have the opportunity to practice these skills in both large group and small-workgroup formats by the end of the course.
Participants:
The workshop is for all caregivers (any person in a position of trust). This includes professional, paraprofessional and lay people. It is suitable for mental health professionals, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, teachers, counselors, youth workers, police and correctional staff, school-support staff, clergy and community volunteers.
