Debriefing Skills

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Are you a manager or team leader who supervises client centered staff?
How do you debrief staff after a difficult situation or support them through a crisis intervention?
How do you ensure your supervision is working for all?

It is always a juggling act when we supervise. We need to look after our clients, our staff, our organisation and of course ourselves.

This workshop examines the range of methods by which support can be provided, including structured, planned supervision, reviewing incidents and support to achieve the required skills. The workshop will also focus on the skills required by supervisors and managers to ensure that effective support is provided, the role of organisational policies and procedures, and the nature of the supervisor-worker relationship.

Participants will be provided with the opportunity to explore:

  • Supervision models and practices
  • Facilitation of emergency interventions
  • Techniques to identify and address staff wellbeing
  • Types of internal and external supports available for staff
  • Legal, ethical and organisational frameworks and associated implications for workers and managers
  • Effective debriefing skills
