Suicide Intervention Skills Workshop (SISW)

As Sector professionals, we may encounter suicide crisis situations. This 2-day skill-based workshop aims to help professionals understand more about suicide situation in Singapore, how to engage the suicidal mind, identify and assess suicide risk, administer appropriate intervention and safety planning. By the end of workshop, participants are expected to demonstrate the skills taught through role play assessment. Participants will also gain awareness of how your personal beliefs and past experiences impact your work with suicidal individuals.

In this workshop, you will learn:

1. Identify personal beliefs and attitudes in suicide work

2. Articulate the local suicide statistics, trends, truths and myths of suicide

3. Identify suicide warning signs  

4. Use therapeutic empathy and ambivalence to engage the suicidal person

5. Apply the suicide risk assessment tool

6. Use the SOS Suicide Intervention Model for intervention

7. Relate community resources/help available for person-in-distress

8. Describe processes of self-care and peer-care
