About this Event

Key Skills:

• Essential Communication Skills

• Supporting Mental Health

• Looking After Ourselves – Dealing with the “Downsides” of Helping

This workshop will use the informal process of peer support to improve workplace culture and the relational ties that exist among employees. It is not necessarily for those in formal peer helper roles. This workshop explores the support process, key qualities of the peer helper, and issues that may arise when assisting others.

Progressive workplaces and communities recognize the importance of being prepared for challenges, and are proactive in better equipping natural helpers with the skills they need to be a supportive resource to others.

This is an interactive and experiential training where participants will work through activities designed to enhance their communication, develop helping skills, and learn practical strategies for supporting others.

Some of the Topics Included:

• Qualities of the Peer Helper

• Common Missteps in Helping

• Essential Communication Skills

• Exploring Strengths and Resources

• Supporting Mental Health

• Dealing with Risks

• Looking After Ourselves – Dealing with the “Downsides” of Helping
