Course Description

ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first-aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may be at risk 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

ASIST can be learned and used by anyone, not just helping professionals.

Join this workshop to equip yourself with the skills and confidence to support someone at risk of suicide.

In the course of the two-day workshop, ASIST participants learn to:

  • Understand the ways personal and societal
    attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions
  • Provide guidance and suicide first-aid to a person
    at risk in ways that meet their individual safety needs
  • Identify the key elements of an effective suicide safety plan and the actions required to implement it

What is ASIST?

ASIST is a resource for the whole community. It helps people apply suicide first-aid in many settings: with family, friends, co-workers, and teammates, as well as formal caregiving roles. Many organizations have incorporated ASIST into professional development for their employees. Its widespread use in various communities creates a common language to understand suicide safety issues and communicate across different organizational backgrounds.

LivingWorks’ ASIST program is supported by numerous evaluations including independent and peer-reviewed studies. Results demonstrate that ASIST helps participants become more willing, ready, and able to intervene with someone at risk of suicide.

This course is organised by Environiche LLP, an approved training organisation under Singapore Workforce Skills Qualification (WSQ).

            Course Description

            Day in and out, you feel frustrated with your present circumstances. Like there’s no way out.

            • Whether as a healthcare/helping professional emotionally burnt out from constantly interacting with people
            • Or as a parent exasperated with your child who doesn’t want to listen to anything you say
            • Or as an individual, tired of your interactions with certain people that almost always seem to end in an intense argument.

            Along the way you might’ve asked yourself these things as well:

            • “What did I do wrong? Is it just me that’s too sensitive/unreasonable/impatient?”
            • “Should I just give up?”

            But asking the wrong questions when trying to process your experiences can lead you into a downward spiral of self-criticism and doubt.

            Reflexive Practice teaches you the right questions to ask yourself so that you can:

            • Make sense of your experiences constructively
            • Connect with your inner-self and gain insight into why you respond in certain ways or make certain decisions
            • Gain clarity about your values and priorities to guide your future actions

            Join us for this course on Reflexive Practice to turn your experiences into insightful strategies for personal and professional growth!”

            Learning Outcomes

            Reflective practice is a systematic process to guide our thinking and reflections. Acquire the skills and techniques to tap into your experience to enhance your effectiveness and to cultivate a habit of continuous learning.

            At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

            • Use various methods of reflective practice to sharpen day-to-day personal, family, and professional effectiveness
            • Apply the principles of reflective practice for constructive self-reflexivity
            • Handle complex and sensitive personal, family or professional issues through greater awareness of personal assumptions and biases
