Please complete the Staying Well Road Trip
online module before attending.
This intensive full day course is an opportunity to learn more about what keeps us well and how to strengthen supportive relationships. This course combines the Staying Well - Understanding Resilience and Self-Care session and the Supporting Your Colleagues/Team session and is suitable for all those wishing to do both and then perhaps progress to the Post Trauma Support course.
During the Staying Well: Understanding Resilience and Self-care part of the day, we discuss the things that threaten our wellbeing in our roles and what protects us, and how to stock our Psychological 1st Aid kits. We learn about the impact of trauma and stress so we can recognise when we might need some help and where we can find this.
The Supporting Your Colleagues/Team part of the day looks at what we can do to strengthen supportive relationships and build strong teams. We know that relationships based on camaraderie, trust and respect act as a buffer against the challenges of working/volunteering for an emergency service. Some of you will also be in leadership/managerial roles. Strong teams, good leadership and peer support keep people well. You will learn how to have helpful conversations with colleagues, how to recognise signs that someone may be struggling and what to do when you are worried about someone.
