Grassroots hosts Training for Training (T4T) Courses for the following:
The ASIST T4T is a five-day residential course and is the first phase of becoming a Registered ASIST Trainer. During the first two days, you will experience (or re-experience) ASIST as any participant would. An appreciation of the participant's perspective is essential to your success as a trainer. The rest of the week is spent learning how to train ASIST by participating in coaching sessions and rehearsing parts of the course yourself in small groups.
The course is very intensive and candidates will need to be free of other commitments during the week including the evenings.
It is delivered by experts in training people to train ASIST from LivingWorks.
The safeTALK T4T is a two day course and is the first phase of becoming a Registered safeTALK Trainer. Candidates observe and participate in an actual safeTALK training, then study and present an assigned part of safeTALK.
All safeTALK candidate trainers must have attended an ASIST workshop before applying and attending any safeTALK Training for Trainers.
Grassroots Suicide Prevention can arrange the provision of ASIST 11 upgrade training for existing ASIST Trainers needing to upgrade to the newest version. We also run regular ASIST refresher TuneUp training for ASIST Trainers.
