Suicide Prevention QPR Gateway Certification Training is presented by CCNY's Katie Miller LMHC on May 17 and June 19, 2018.
QPR is an evidenced based tool providing successful suicide intervention. It is not a therapy or counseling model, therefore the only credential needed to utilize the tool is the training outlined below.
This training will be delivered in person by certified instructor, covering the following areas:
- Epidemiology of suicide and current statistics, as well as myths and misconceptions about suicide and suicide prevention
- General warning signs of suicide
- The three target gatekeeper skills (i.e., question, persuade, refer).
The training incorporates videos, information slides, and provides standardized role-play
dialogue for use in a behavioral rehearsal practice session.
Once trained, the participants receive a booklet that contains an overview of the didactic presentation and a review of the gatekeeper role. These are distributed for use as a review and resource tool, emphasized in the training and information about local referral resources. In addition, each participant will receive a certificate acknowledging their international registration as a QPR Gatekeeper.
