ASIST: Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training - Surrey Hills, November 2016

ASIST is the most widely used suicide intervention model in the world. In this 2 day interactive workshop, learn how to:

  • reflect on how your attitudes and beliefs about suicide affect your intervention role
  • discuss suicide with a person at risk in a direct manner
  • build a collaborative approach to intervention focused on safe outcomes
  • review immediate suicide risk and develop appropriate safeplans
  • demonstrate skills required to intervene with a person at risk of suicide
  • identify resources available to a person at risk of suicide
  • make a commitment to improving community resources
  • recognise that suicide prevention is broader than suicide first aid and includes life-promotion and self-care for caregivers

ASIST is run by registered LivingWorks trainers and uses internationally standardised learning materials.
