Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)

ASIST is a two-day, two-trainer, workshop designed for members of all caregiving groups. Family, friends, and other community members may be the first to talk with a person at risk, but have little or no training. ASIST can also provide those in formal helping roles with professional development.

About the event

As an Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) trainee, or, ‘suicide first responder’, you will be better able to:

• recognize and assist a person at risk to avoid suicide

• discuss suicide with a person at risk in a direct manner

• demonstrate the skills required to intervene with a person at risk of suicide

• recognize that caregivers and persons at risk are affected by personal and societal attitudes about suicide

• learn about the facts of suicide and dispel the myths

• identify risk alerts and develop a safe plan related to them

• list the types of resources available to a person at risk of suicide

• make a commitment to advocacy, 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.

Certificate & Accreditation: Upon completion, participants receive a certificate. ASIST was developed by Livingworks Education and is recognized as the international standard for suicide intervention training.

Does ASIST training expire? No, your ASIST certificate does not expire but LivingWorks suggests that it would be best practice to take a Tune-Up between years 2 and 3 just to make sure your skills can still promote safety and for confidence.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: Many organizations and licensure boards will provide CEU (Continuing Education Units) credits for attending ASIST.

Duration: 14 hours over 2 days (9:00AM - 5:00PM on both days with a break for lunch). Please arrive 15 minutes early on the first day to fill out forms.

Completion Requirements: 100% attendance, skills demonstration.
