This procedure is what I have been using, but I was looking for some type of formal training in CIT or even negotiation training.

Thanks

I will check this out for you. In most cases, people who threaten suicide are in an immediate crisis. If you can distract them, point out the effect suicide has on family/friends, etc. the immediate crisis will pass. However, for those that are strongly set on ending their lives, they don’t talk about it. You may notice some significant signs however. You might notice that the person is giving some or all of his/her property away, that he/she seems unusually at peace or almost joyful. He/she may start thanking COs that have been kind or understanding. These are the folks you really need to worry about. They have given a lot of thought to ending their lives and are determined to do so successfully.

Does anyone out there know of a good class given in CIT directly or indirectly related to talking a suicide attempt down?
Thanks.
