The SafeSide Suicide Prevention Workshop is a free full-day training session sponsored by the Ministry of Health NSW for health professionals and community workers to support individuals at risk of suicide.
SafeSide is a framework for recovery-oriented suicide prevention that lifts our sights beyond merely ‘keeping clients safe’ towards a vision of evidence-based care that is truly connected with a client’s needs, experiences, and growth potential. SafeSide is the next-generation update of Commitment to Living (Pisani, Cross, Watts, & Conner, 2012), an evidence-based workshop that addresses common dilemmas, demands, and rewards of supporting individuals at risk for suicide. Centred on prevention-oriented risk formulation (Pisani, Murrie, & Silverman, 2016), SafeSide comprises four components, which are explained HERE.
SafeSide also features a new set of video-recorded skills demonstrations and these brief demonstrations bring the SafeSide model to life, and drive discussion and practice.
SafeSide is co-led by Dr. Tony Pisani and Kristina Mossgraber.
