Just as CPR prepares you for stepping in to assist with a cardiac emergency, QPR will give you the skills and knowledge to intervene to possibly prevent suicide.
In addition to the standard QPR curriculum, this 2-hour course blends elements from the QPR for Youth to provide Adults with guidance for assisting Youth.
We will address information specific to Alabama and Southeastern US culture, and national and worldwide statistics.
The process follows three steps:
Trainees receive QPR materials and resources that include Alabama State and National referrals.
How to Question, Persuade, and Refer someone who may be suicidal. Learn how to get help for yourself or more about preventing suicide.
Up to 2.0 CEU will be provided to Alabama Social Workers,* Alabama Nurses,** Alabama EMS, and Nationally Certified Counselors as well as contact hours (up to 2.0) for other attendees after participating in the webinar at least 80% and completing the post-survey.
