Non-Clinical Assessment of Suicide Certification Course

This one-day certification course builds upon concepts learned in the Non-Clinical Assessment of Suicide (NAS) training. This training provides extensive practice and skill-building in conducting NAS in variable contexts.

Assessing suicide risk can be complex and overwhelming. Participants will develop skills related to conducting an interview to determine an individual’s risk. Following a brief review of NAS, participants will practice conducting a NAS by engaging in scenarios and receiving feedback on their interview skills. By engaging in role-play practice of the interview, participants will develop skills for building rapport, asking questions, and gathering information to facilitate the assessment of suicide risk.

This course will help participants improve their confidence when interviewing an individual dealing with risks related to self-harm and suicide. It will focus on various aspects, including recognizing the warning signs and risk factors associated with suicidal ideation, as well as strategies for effective communication and emotional support.
