Event description

Description

Virtually anyone age 16 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, can become an ASIST-trained caregiver. Developed in 1983 and regularly updated to reflect improvements in knowledge and practice, ASIST is the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop. During the two-day interactive session, participants learn to intervene and help prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over 1,000,000 people have taken the workshop, and studies have proven that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings for those at risk.

Workshop features:

  • Presentations and guidance from two LivingWorks registered trainers

  • A scientifically proven intervention model

  • Powerful audiovisual learning aids

  • Group discussions

  • Skills practice and development

  • A balance of challenge and safety

ASIST has saved and changed hundreds of thousands of lives around the world.

Logistics:

Lunch is served both days of the training and water is always on hand. Both days are required in full to be certified in ASIST. This training is valued at roughly $250 per person and is often difficult to find. Please make sure that if you do not plan to attend, you notify the organizer as soon as possible to allow your seat to be used for our waiting list.
