Overview:

This two-day interactive workshop is for everyone aged sixteen or older who wants to be able to provide suicide first aid, regardless of prior experience.

Shown by major studies to significantly reduce suicidality, the ASIST model teaches effective intervention skills while helping to build suicide prevention networks in the community.

Workshop Features:

  • Presentations and guidance from two Living Works registered trainers
  • A scientifically proven intervention model
  • Powerful audio-visual learning aids
  • Group discussions
  • Skills practice and development

The course teaches participants to recognise when someone may be at risk of suicide, how to intervene and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety and help prevent the immediate risk of suicide. The course is divided into five sections that follow in a logical progression to gradually build comfort and understand around suicide and suicide intervention.

  • Preparing: Sets the tone and expectations of the learning experience.
  • Connecting: Sensitises participants to their own attitudes towards suicide and creates an understanding of the impact that attitudes can have on the intervention process.
  • Understanding: Monitors the intervention needs of a person at risk. Focusing on providing participants with the knowledge and skills to recognise risk and develop safe plans to reduce the risk of suicide.
  • Assisting: Presents a model for effective suicide intervention. Participants develop their skills through observation and supervised simulation experiences in large and small groups.
  • Networking: Generates information about resources in the local community. Promotes a commitment by participants to transform local resources into helping networks.

On completion of the workshop you’ll receive a twenty-page workbook, wallet card, stickers and a certificate.
