Train the Trainer QPR Gatekeeper Instructor Training | Centennial Hall, UW-La Crosse
This certification course trains Instructors to teach QPR for Suicide Prevention to their community. Participants first learn about the nature of suicidal communications, what forms these communications take and how they may be used as the stimulus for a QPR intervention. Participants then learn to market QPR, target potential Gatekeepers, and how to teach the QPR curriculum. Participants also learn to deal with pent up audience demand to talk about suicide, survivor issues and how to make immediate interventions and referrals. Each participant has the opportunity for individual rehearsal and practice through role-plays.

Cost: $425, Pre-conference Train the Trainer QPR Gatekeeper, includes lunch and refreshments
