Professional Trainings

Our staff provides professional training in four subject areas: suicide prevention and crisis intervention, grief and loss.

The cost to an agency or business for a two-hour training is $200, for a half-day training it’s $375, and for a full-day training it’s $700. Continuing education unit (CEU) credits are available at an additional cost of $10 per person.

Suicide Prevention

In addition to two-hour, half-day, and full-day trainings, we offer an intensive two-day training in ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training). ASIST was developed by an organization in Canada called Living Works and is the most popular suicide prevention training program in the world. It’s endorsed by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and other entities. The training requires two instructors, is highly interactive, and is limited to 25 people. Participants receive a large binder all appropriate materials. The cost is $250 per person.

Suicide prevention trainings are led by highly trained staff in many LivingWorks™ models.

Grief and Loss

Trainings in grief and loss are offered each fall in preparation for joining either our grief counseling team or our clinical internship.
