Event Details

 

What the course covers?

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day, interactive workshop that prepares caregivers to provide suicide first aid interventions. Small group discussions and skills practice are based on adult learning principles. ASIST teaches the Suicide Intervention Model, a practical guide to doing suicide interventions. Powerful videos and roll-playing will be utilised to support learning.

By the end of the training, participants will be better able to:

  • Identify people who have thoughts of suicide
  • Understand how beliefs and attitudes can affect suicide interventions
  • Seek a shared understanding of the reasons for thoughts of suicide and the reasons for living
  • Review current risk and develop a plan to increase safety from suicidal behaviour for an agreed amount of time
  • Follow up on safety commitments, accessing further help as needed

Who can attend the course?

Any interested adult can attend. Please note this course is not a therapy or support group, rather it is an education course to learn how to give first aid to others.

 Preference will be given to those who live, work, study or visit the City of Vincent.
