You are invited to attend the next ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention
Skills Training) workshop in Portland. ASIST is for counselors,
health specialists and other “gatekeepers” who want to feel more
comfortable, confident and competent in helping to prevent the immediate
risk of suicide.
Over 200,000 people have participated in this two-day, highly
interactive, practical, practice-oriented workshop. ASIST will help you
recognize and estimate risk and prepare you to intervene. Emphasizing
structured small-group discussions and practice, ASIST trainers use
case-studies and 2 award-winning DVD's.
