Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST)
January 23, 2019 -January 24, 2019$75
ASIST is appropriate for all members of the community regardless of prior experience or training. It is based upon the premise that most people who have thoughts of suicide do not fully want to die but are struggling with pain in their lives, and that through their words and actions, invite help to stay alive. ASIST is also appropriate for professionals of all disciplines who can enhance their skills with these trainings. Participants will learn about “contributaries” to thoughts of suicide, to recognize “invitations” to ask about thoughts of suicide, to have a conversation with someone at risk, and to connect to effective sources of support.
Course fee: $75 (New York State Office of Mental Health provides support for this training.)
15 Contact Hours for New York State Licensed Master Social Workers, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, and Licensed Mental Health Counselors available.
Note: This is a 2 day workshop on 1/23-1/24 from 9:00am – 5:00pm
