Event Summary

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two day (14 hour) intensive, practice-dominated certification designed to help caregivers recognize and intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide.

The workshop will prepare you 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

•Recognize that suicide prevention is broader than suicide intervention and, includes life promotion and self-care for persons at risk and for caregivers
