The CALM 1-day workshop is a one day workshop that teaches four key actions: Connect, Ask, Listen, Monitor to build confidence, knowledge and skills. Specific course content and learning outcomes can be viewed at this weblink: https://www.suicideprograms.com.au/workshop/calm-suicide-intervention/
The T4T is effectively delivered over a 4-day period face-to-face OR over a 5-day period virtually. This ensures that all participants understand the theories, principles and models that underpin CALM and the CALM Care programs; fully grasp and are able to demonstrate their ability to explain and use the CALM model of intervention as well as raise awareness, and lastly to gain confidence in their ability to competently deliver these programs to their audiences.
Day 1 – When delivered face-to-face the CALM one-day program will be delivered in its entirety to give you a view of the one day presentation from a participants perspective and provide reflection and feedback.
- When delivered virtually the one-day program will be presented over two half days to account for virtual fatigue and ensuring participants can consolidate their learnings.
Day 2 – Each component of the model will be explained and explored in full detail covering the evidence and practice theories that underpins and informs the model. The afternoon focuses on the organising, planning, preparation and presentation of a CALM workshop.
Day 3– Each participant will have the opportunity to practice and present a section of the program to ensure they have understood the intent and delivery method of the CALM model as well as enabling them to gain confidence in their presentation styles.
Day 4– The CALM Care half-day program will be delivered in its entirety to provide a comprehensive overview. The difference between programs, evidence and delivery will be outlined. Participants will have the opportunity to practice and present a section of the CALM Care program in the afternoon of day 4.
