DCTA’s own nationally recognized trainer, Dr. Tim Brown will be providing another opportunity to take the Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST). ASIST is an Evidence-Based Practice designed to teach professionals and non-professionals alike how to recognize suicide risk and what to say and do to keep the person safe until the next level of help can become involved. The $60 registration fee (payable to DCTA) includes 2-day interactive training, all participants’ materials, a certificate of completion, as well as continental breakfasts and lunches both days. We will provide a Friday sub for any member who wishes to attend. Free parking is available.

ASIST is the world’s leading suicide intervention workshop. It is a scientifically proven intervention model where participants learn to intervene and help prevent the immediate risk of suicide. Many of your colleagues have already taken this training and carried out life-saving interventions. It has saved and changed hundreds of thousands of lives around the world!
