This training offers a unique “Safe to Fail” environment while learning the skills necessary for effective discussions with people dealing with mental health issues; their own or a family member.
The workshop teaches the principles of “Effective Questioning” and “Active Listening” as well as basic communication skills.
It then offers a safe environment in which to put those skills to the test.
The “Safe” fail is provided through the use of professional improvisational actors who will be following various scenarios. However, these actors will be reacting directly to how participants approach them. This simulated interaction will help prepare participants for the real world experiences they may one day face.
The workshop is for anyone in management or human resources who may be called upon to directly interact with an employee dealing with mental health issues. It also is for supervisory staff who may be placed in similar situations.
Cost for the workshop $185.00 (includes lunch)
