ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training)

Thursday 16 June - Friday 17 June

$275 – $360

What is ASIST?
ASIST is a 2 day interactive workshop, founded on the principle that
everyone can make a difference in preventing suicide. The more people in the
community who have suicide intervention training, the more likely it is they will be able to identify someone at risk and intervene to keep them safe.
The training provides participants with the confidence to ask about suicide and know what action to take. By learning to recognise and assess someone with thoughts of suicide, participants become more effective at helping people at risk to stay safe and seek further help.

Who attends the workshops?
People attend these workshops for different reasons.
Some attend as a professional development exercise to refresh their existing skills in suicide intervention; others attend simply because they want to be able to help
someone in need, in much the same way they might learn CPR.

Workshop Features:
Presentation and guidance from two LivingWorks registered trainers
Local, highly experienced Alice Springs trainers
A scientifically proven intervention model
Powerful audiovisual learning aids
Group discussions
Skills practice and development
