Event description

Description

The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop is for individuals who want to feel more comfortable, confident, and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over a million people have received this training. Just as "CPR" skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills needed for life assisting suicide first aid. ASIST is a two-day intensive, interactive, and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide and provide safety-for-now.

The workshop is designed for all individuals (any person over 18). This includes professionals, para-professionals, and community members. 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. In ASIST, sophisticated helping concepts are translated into generic language so that different types of individuals can learn together. ASIST is the most widely used suicide intervention training program in the world. Additional information is available online at http://www.livingworks.net.

This training will be facilitated by Cati Stremppel CPS, Paige Hosford CPS, Loren Culberhouse, and Adam Jones MSW, CADCI

Please note: Participation in the full two days is required; any partial absences will result in participant having to retake course from the beginning.

Safety considerations: ASIST may not be appropriate for everyone, as it could be a triggering environment. This training is an education program and is not intended in any way to provide therapy to anyone who has experienced a recent loss or who is themselves at risk for suicide. We aim to create a safe learning environment for all. Help is available 24 hrs/day, 7 days/week by calling 541-440-3532 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
