Suicide Intervention Training Workshop in Christchurch

Wednesday, August 02, 2017   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: Training, workshop, suicide, prevention

+ASIST.A-OK is organising a 2-day ASIST Suicide Intervention Training Workshop in Christchurch. Just like a first aider can make an assessment about injuries deciding if a visit to the doctor or an ambulance is required, an +ASIST Suicide First Aider will use tools and skills to assess if a person needs immediate help and/or hospitalisation, emergency counselling or a simple connection to family or friends.

ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is skills based, interactive workshop teaching you essential skills in how to:

  • recognise suicide signals
  • confidently raise the issues of suicide with an at-risk person
  • know what to ask and say to helpfully explore their issues
  • assess risk and safety needs
  • 'triage' those at risk to professional and other assistance

The course is designed for anyone and is suitable for people like kaiawhina, nurses, caregivers, social workers, teachers, counsellors, corrections officers, youth workers, ministers etc. 

Date: Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th September 2017
Location: To be confirmed
Cost: $400 including GST per person. Subsidised places are also avaialble ($275 per person).

Register online now for this ASIST Suicide First Aid course as spaces are limited.
