Why choose Storm Skills Training?
Our unique focus on skills, research, and quality
We take what we learn from research, best practice, and lived experience to create our training. We then work with teams and individuals to enhance skills to use this effectively in a conversation with someone in distress – including engagement, assessment, formulation, and safety planning.
Our evidence-based training methodologies give frontline team members the opportunity to practice, reflect, and give and receive feedback on skills in a safe and supportive learning environment. We use the highest standard of skills development, which includes filmed skills practice for the more advanced levels of our courses.
Our training is dynamic and challenging because conversations about self-harm and suicide prevention can be dynamic and challenging.
