Instructors: Yvette Perreault & Betty Ann Rutledge
This training is designed for agency leaders who manage or supervise staff, peers or volunteers who are impacted by loss and traumatic events, either in the course of their work, or in their personal lives. This session will provide an orientation to the broad range of assessment and intervention skills that provide support and stabilization for our teams and our agencies in loss situations. We will also explore specific best practices, including a structure for low-impact debriefing after significant loss events and practical considerations about our own well-being as managers.
This training will provide an orientation to the broad range of assessment and intervention skills for supporting ourselves, our teams and our agencies in loss situations. As managers and colleagues, supporting one another to collaboratively respond to these loss events can help create healthy workplaces, spirited teams and more resilient workers.
Using a combination of presentation, reflective activities and group interaction, this adult education learning opportunity will assist managers, colleagues and peers to work with grief and loss in these 3 areas:
- Support for bereaved workers as individuals
- Support for a team when death or loss occurs as part of the work
- Support for the organization when there are significant changes in the workplace not necessarily related to death, but generating a loss/stress response
TARGET GROUP: Executive Directors, Managers & Supervisors
