At Sara’s Project, we believe that education leads to prevention. We accomplish this through training programs as well as advocacy, along with assistance from some great partners (link). All our local trainings are offered free for participants, and we provide continuing education hours for professionals as well. Training topics include:
- Development and implementation of on-site crisis teams
- Team dynamics
- Grief in the classroom
- Child abuse identification
- Trauma response
- Substance abuse
- Suicide intervention
- Group problem solving
We offer three specific trainings: Crisis Management, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) and SafeTalk, as well as our child advocacy center, Sara’s House.
The emphasis of the ASIST workshop is suicide first-aid, helping a person at risk stay safe and seek further help. This two-day, intense training helps individuals recognize red flags and response to invitations for help.
This training provides teachers, counselors, administrators and parents the opportunity to learn about grief and loss, as well as how to respond appropriately in a school setting. It’s taught over one or two days, depending upon your needs.
