Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training provides a practical, face-to-face model for all caregivers to follow when intervening with a suicidal person. Over the course of this 2-day workshop, participants learn:
- about their own attitudes concerning suicide
- how to recognize and assess the risk of suicide
- how to use an effective suicide intervention model
- about available community resources
The workshop offers caregivers the opportunity to develop their confidence and skills to intervene until the immediate risk of suicide has passed or until other resources can be mobilized.


**Please know that this training is 85% experiential; missing one section can cause you to miss something vital, as each section builds upon the previous section. We ask that you arrive on time, turn off your pagers and cell phones, and give us your undivided attention for two days.

Approval is pending for a total of 12.5 Clinical contact hours of continuing education credit for Social Workers, as approved by the OBH which is an authorized approval organization of the Louisiana State Board of Social Work Examiners, the LA Counseling Assn. and the ADRA.
