About:

This short course is designed to raise your awareness of the importance of suicide and inform you about some of the key questions. Specifically:


Who should attend:

Professionals who sometimes see people who are at risk of suicide, whether in residential facilities, outpatient facilities or in the community.

Note: the age of the people you see is immaterial, it is a fallacy that it is 'mainly young men' who take their own lives.

Equally on gender, although some people make the point that about three times as many men than women end their own lives in the UK, it is still the case that a substantial number of women do so every year.

What you receive as a result of attending the training:

Each delegate will be registered as having attended the course and receive a certificate to this effect.

Option 3: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
