As a certified trainer with the
Center for Suicide Prevention,
I can provide the following:
(Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training)
This two-day workshop provides skills and knowledge for any
caregiver to assist them to intervening with a person
at risk of suicide. The workshops has five learning sections:
Preparing, Connecting, Understanding, Assisting and Networking.
The workshop format is made up of lectures, discussions,
role plays and practical examples.
(This workshop requires two trainers).

1/2 day ASIST Tune-up
This four hour workshop is for participants who have
completed the two day ASIST workshop and are requiring recertification.
The two day ASIST certificate expires after three years
of taking the workshop.
If you take the ASIST Tune-up it will re-certify you for another two years.
This workshop does a review of the material learned in
ASIST and offers opportunity for discussion
and learned experiences.
Straight Talk: Youth Suicide Prevention
This one-day workshop provides information and
fosters the development of intervention skills for those
in direct contact with youth. It develops the ability to
recognize youth as risk as well as support youth in
making healthy choices. Intervention approaches build on
the skills taught in the ASIST as it applies to youth.
Tattered Teddies: Suicide in Children
This half-day workshop provides information and offers
practical approaches for those working with children who
are age 12 or younger who may be at risk of suicide.
Intervention approaches build on the skills
taught in the ASIST as it applies to children.
Little Cub: Suicide in Indigenous Children
This workshop provides information and offers practical approaches
for those working with Indigenous children who may be at risk of suicide.
The precipitating factors of suicide are different in Indigenous communities
than in the general population.
Walk With Me: Indigenous Suicide Bereavement
The Walk With Me workshop draws on Indigenous culture and tradition
as it seeks to take participants through the cycle of suicide grief.
This workshop takes the participants on a journey from the past,
to the present and looks to the future; it creates a context for people to
examine where they are in the grief cycle and how they can move forward to hope.
