Training for Trainers

Grassroots hosts Training for Training (T4T) Courses for the following:

Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) T4T:

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.

Course in Brighton, 2018
