ICISF Online Event – Suicide Awareness: An Introduction for Crisis Responders Online Course
Date:Friday December 18, 2020
Never has there been a time when Suicide Awareness is more relevant.
The ability to recognize and effectively intervene with suicidal individuals is one of the most challenging aspects of crisis intervention. Join instructor Michelle Warshauer to learn how to increase your awareness of suicide, and learn information and basic skills to respond to a person considering suicide.
Dates: April 5-16, 2021
“The broad overview of suicide resources [during this online course] was helpful. Understanding how I can recognize some of the risk factors, initiate a conversation about suicide, and refer someone for further help was a benefit to learn.”
“I really enjoyed the ability to take this course on my own time. I have taken numerous suicide courses through the years, but this one is my favorite. I thought that the progression was perfect, as it moved from basic concepts to more expanded ones (but built on each basic concept in each module).”
This online course is delivered during a two (2) week time frame and is a self paced, interactive course which contains discussions and assignments on the content. To learn more & register for this upcoming online course, visit https://icisf.org/event/sa2021_2/.
