ASIST Suicide Prevention Workshop
As many of your are aware, Lotus Riche' Ignites will be launching Atlanta's first Suicide Prevention workshop. I wanted to provide you with a detailed description of the ASIST Suicide Prevention program and thank you for your support.
The Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) workshop is for caregivers who want to feel more comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Over a million caregivers have received this training. Just as "CPR" skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills needed for life assisting suicide first aid. ASIST is a two-day intensive, interactive and practice-dominated course designed to help caregivers learn how to intervene to prevent the immediate risk of suicide and provide safety-for-now.
The workshop is designed for all caregivers (any person over age 15 in a position of trust). This includes professionals, paraprofessionals and lay people. It is suitable for mental health professionals, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, teachers, counselors, youth workers, police and correctional staff, school support staff, clergy, and community volunteers. In ASIST, sophisticated helping concepts are translated into generic language so that different types of caregivers can learn together. ASIST is the most widely used suicide intervention training program in the world. Additional information is available online at http://www.livingworks.net.
Participants can also receive 12 CEUs (continuing education units). In most states, this credit is available for social workers, nurses, psychologists, licensed counselors, substance abuse counselors, and licensed marriage & family therapists.
The workshop will be held on August 25-26, 2017 from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm at First United Methodist Church, 4863 North Henry Blvd., Stockbridge, GA 30281.
