safeTALK T4T

safeTALK Training for Trainers (T4T) is a two-day course that prepares attendees to facilitate safeTALK workshops. By completing a T4T, participants will join over 2,500 trainers around the world who provide life-saving suicide alertness skills through safeTALK workshops. Each T4T is led by LivingWorks instructors who have substantial experience presenting safeTALK and training others to do so.

The T4T course is the first step toward becoming a registered safeTALK trainer. In the course, attendees learn the content and process of safeTALK and the skills needed to conduct it. During the first half-day of the T4T, participants will experience the safeTALK workshop. This provides a shared experience that helps frame the rest of the learning. The remaining time focuses on the skills necessary to lead the workshop, including use of the safeTALK Trainer Manual and audiovisuals, developing the confidence and mastery to present the content, and establishing links with other trainers who may become part of a support network. Attendees can expect a balance of challenge, support, and opportunities for participation at the T4T. 

The process of becoming a registered safeTALK trainer requires a significant commitment from participants (and their organizations, if applicable). The opportunity to provide life-saving suicide alertness skills is well worth the effort, however.
