When life’s challenges occur, people naturally reach out to those closest to them—coworkers, friends, and family. Their initial response can go a long way in terms of normalizing the challenge, planning the next steps, and exploring additional resources.
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 workshop explores the support process, key qualities of the peer helper, and issues that may arise when assisting others.
This is an interactive and experiential training, where you will work through activities designed to enhance your communication, develop helping skills, and learn practical strategies for supporting others.
Some topics include:
- 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
