ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) is being offered at the Family Service Association of Bucks County on On May 7-8, 2018.  Location of the training is 4 Cornerstone Drive, Langhorne, PA 19047.  Cost for the 2-day training is $300.00.  You must attend both days to obtain the training certificate.

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop—anyone 16 or older can learn and use the ASIST model.  Studies show that the ASIST method helps reduce suicidal feelings in those at risk and is a cost-effective way to help address the problem of suicide.

If you have any questions concerning this training, please contact Maria Picciotti at her office 215.355.6611 and/or mpicciotti@fsabc.org.   ASIST Training_May 2018
