Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day interactive workshop in suicide first aid. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don't need any formal training to attend the workshop.

Understand the ways that personal and societal attitudes affect views on suicide and interventions

Appreciate the value of improving and integrating suicide prevention resources in the community at large
Recognize other important aspects of suicide prevention including life-promotion and self-care
Presentations and guidance from two LivingWorks registered trainers
A scientifically proven intervention model
Powerful audiovisual learning aids
Skills practice and development
A balance of challenge and safety

One-hour trainings teach participants how to recognize suicide warning signs and raise awareness of campus resources. Two-hour trainings go more in depth, highlighting communication skills that can be helpful with students in distress, and often include a role play that demonstrates an effective intervention.
The Faculty & Staff section of the UCC website includes several additional online resources for helping students in distress.
Join the adventure of a lifetime and spend spring break biking to San Francisco from your front door! This trip is capped at 12 participants. I expect this trip to fill up fast so I need to hear from you promptly if you are interested. We will be biking for 10 days, camping for 9 nights. The trip will follow the Oregon-California coastline, culminating in the glorious crossing of the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco. This trip is of high difficulty due to the high mileage without rest days, elevation, and the weather. This is going to take tremendous planning, collaboration and effort from all participants. If you are seriously considering participating in this adventure please sign up here on the website, and follow up with me via email. I look forward to riding with you on the Pacific Coast Highway!
