It Just Works: Podcast


Oct 19, 2021


This is the fourth episode in season three of A World Where LivingWorks, a season focused on learning about the history and evolution of their groundbreaking suicide first aid training practices, now being taught around the world.

In the last episode we talked about how people really gravitated to the ASIST model of suicide intervention skills training when it was developed with Richard saying, it just worked.

Today we’ll talk a little more about the evidence behind that program and others developed by LivingWorks since. They are often referred to as the gold standard in suicide intervention skills training and you can see a full list of ever increased published papers and studies on their website – with more being added by research teams and implementers in diverse settings around the world each day. Let’s learn a little bit more some of the key research from Richard’s perspective.
