ASIST Training – Nashville
October 22, 2019 @ 8:30 am CDT - October 23, 2019 @ 5:00 pm CDT
Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is an internationally acclaimed two-day interactive training program in suicide first-aid.
ASIST is listed on the National Suicide Prevention Registry of Evidence-Based Programs.
ASIST is designed to empower a wide variety of community members with the hands-on skills to intervene in the case of suicide.
The training provides you with the tools to create positive outcomes when someone is feeling suicidal.
ASIST is for adults who want to be able to provide suicide first aid. 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.
Each ASIST workshop shares many core features that make up the LivingWorks international standard. Here is what you can expect at your ASIST training:
- ASIST is held over two consecutive days for a total of 15 hours.
- Local resources are provided and their availability in the community is discussed.
- Participants also receive a certificate upon completing the workshop.
This training requires that participants are present from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM for both full days of the training. Attendance for the entirety of both days is required for a certificate of attendance and eligibility for CEUs. CEUs are available through Living Works at a cost, to be detailed during the two-day training.
The sessions will run from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM CDT; a lunch break is scheduled, but lunch itself will be on your own.
