Crisis Management: Practical Psychological First Aid
When a crisis situation strikes, it is critical that the affected people – family members, relatives and friends - are helped compassionately, swiftly and skillfully. Put differently, administering 'Psychological First Aid' to minister to the mental state of the victims is just as important as applying bandages to physical injuries. This will go a long way to restoring the mental wellbeing of the affected. From a corporate perspective, providing timely psychological interventions help mitigate chances of lawsuits, negative press and further staff psychological distress.
This workshop equips those involved in crisis management with practical psychological first aid skills needed during crisis situations. Unlike other similarly titled courses, this workshop goes beyond just explaining the fundamental do's and don'ts of what you should do, e.g., acknowledge the sufferer's feelings, respect privacy, etc. This course goes deeper by teaching practical PFA skills, for instance, techniques to help victims recover from unstable emotional states (or states of shock).
Applying Effective People-Helping Intervention Strategies
As a HR professional, you meet many people in the course of your work: you recruit suitable candidates for vacant positions; you conduct promotion interviews; you train and advise line managers on staff behavioral matters ... the list goes on.
This workshop extends beyond the many mental health talks and seminars you may have attended. HR professionals need to move beyond head knowledge about mental conditions, like bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder, to provide real practical support to persons-in-need using effective intervention techniques such as butterfly hugs, deep breathing skills and ‘worry- hour’ application.This workshop teaches you practical yet helpful techniques that you, a layperson without clinical psychological background, can use to help such people. A psychological screening tool and spe- cific intervention strategies will be taught through a variety of approaches. That includes direct teaching, skills practice, group discussion, peer learning and authentic sharing.
From Burnout to Empowered Practice: A Compassion Fatigue Workshop
Findings have highlighted the risk of Compassion Fatigue, Burnout and Secondary Traumatic Stress among helping professionals and their adverse consequences on the well-being of professionals, job satisfaction, professional efficacy, staff absenteeism and turnover rates as well as service outcomes. Unfortunately, these phenomena often go undetected or are misinterpreted, even by the people who experience them.
This full-day immersive workshop was designed for all professionals who take care of others for a living including educators, counselors, therapists, and more.
Regardless of your level of experience in the field, this experiential workshop is a well-deserved opportunity to pause, refuel your mind and your body, and deepen your passion for this important work so that you can continue to contribute from a place of abundance.
