We are pleased to announce that Action to Prevent Suicide is hosting a safeTALK Training for Trainers (T4T) at the Mercure Exeter Rougemont Hotel, Queen St, Exeter, Devon EX4 3SP on the 27th & 28th March 2019.
safeTALK Training for Trainers (T4T) is a two-day course that prepares attendees to facilitate safeTALK workshops.
LivingWorks Education is responsible for developing the training, supporting trainers and maintaining quality assurance. All safeTALK trainers are required to be registered with LivingWorks. Once you book on the T4T we will provide information on how to do this. You can read more about the T4T here; https://www.livingworks.net/programs/safetalk-for-trainers/
Attending the T4T will start you on the journey to becoming a registered safeTALK trainer. SafeTALK is a half-day training course that can help make a difference. It raises awareness and teaches participants a simple 4 step approach to support someone thinking of suicide. SafeTALK introduces easy to remember TALK steps - Tell, Ask, Listen and Keep-safe. These practical steps offer immediate help to someone having thoughts of suicide and supports everyone’s involvement in creating a suicide safer community. You can read more about the workshop here:
The cost of the T4T is £850.00. This includes all course tuition, workshop materials, trainer kit, refreshments and lunch on both days.
We also recommend you consider pre-ordering the materials for your first workshop, so you have everything you need to run your first safeTALK workshop on completion of the T4T. You will have the opportunity to select this as an option when making your booking. safeTALK participant materials cost £7.00 per head. This price includes print costs, shipping and a small financial return to LivingWorks to offset development costs, trainer support and quality assurance. As a social enterprise LivingWorks finances all of these costs without subsidies, government grants or tax benefits.
