Nurturing Professionals in Challenging Environments - Online NEW CLASS

This workshop date is offered Online using the free Zoom interactive platform. Participants are expected to participate using web camera, audio, and individual computer/tablet. (More information will be provided upon request or upon registering for this date.) This workshop is designed for supervisors and managers to help them learn to support their staff using Solution-Focused Practice. Many professionals have no idea the emotional toll involved in the helping professions, and are not equipped to manage the stress, client stories, and expectations. This workshop looks at how subtle shifts in language can have a tremendous shift in the conversations. We look at how to talk about client cases in a way that does not trigger secondary trauma and compassion fatigue. We look at how to help employees create bonds of success with their co-workers rather than trauma bonds. We address how to help young or inexperienced workers manage their emotions while gaining confidence in their skills. Difficult team norms, gossiping, etc. are also addressed.
