Developed by the Vancouver Island Crisis Society, the two-day research-based Crisis Intervention Skills Training workshop has been designed to teach a strengths-based approach to the communication, assessment, and suicide response skills essential for crisis intervention. Both days begin at 9:00 am and end at 4:00 pm.
Join us for two days (8:30 am to 4:30 pm each day) as our master trainers present ASIST 11 (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training by LivingWorks), a skills-building workshop that prepares caregivers of all kinds to provide suicide first aid interventions.
Volunteering on the crisis line is a rewarding experience. We offer an opportunity to learn new and useful skills as well as an opportunity to be involved in a “front line” helping environment. Many people find our program very useful for developing marketable skills and for exploring education options.
The time span covers the sessions offered in Phase 1 of the training program.
