Building Resilient Teams: Organizational Health in Trauma-Exposed Environments

Lead by: Dr. Patricia Fisher, R.Psych., L.Psych.

9:00AM-4:00PM

Serving: Two Coffee Breaks with Refreshments and Lunch

 

1-day training program for Supervisors and Managers:

 

Trauma-exposed work creates a unique climate with increased risk for serious stress and burnout and can lead to a rise in sick time, low morale, lack of team cohesion and high turnover. These consequences can, in turn, seriously limit a team’s ability to work effectively and efficiently.

As leaders, the managers and supervisors of these teams can play an essential role in mitigating the effects of stress and increase the resilience of their staff. This program supports managers and supervisors to be effective leaders and to build strong, resilient and productive teams by:

  • Introducing and apply the Organizational Health Model
  • Explore the vital role of supervisors and managers in Organizational Health
  • Discuss the risk and resiliency factors driving your Organizational Health profile
  • Understanding the unique properties of trauma-exposed work and the critical need to enhance individual and team resiliency
  • Applying the Complex Stress Model of Workplace Stress which includes both the system-based stresses and traumatic stresses (direct trauma and vicarious trauma).
  • Recognizing the impact of chronic stress on individuals, teams and organizations.
  • Defining the ecology of your workplace and prioritizing your current needs
  • Identifying the three key functions of a supervision and mentoring program
  • Reviewing our unique toolkit for leaders in trauma-exposed work

Each participant will receive:

  • A copy of the workshop resource booklet containing the overheads and a comprehensive suite of reusable assessment tools
  • A copy of: Building Resilient Teams: Facilitating Workplace Wellness & Organizational Health in Trauma-Exposed Environments

Cost: $360 CAD ($295 for course and $65 for the resource book and participant booklet)
