We have successfully facilitated our first online training sessions! Virtually bringing back the wonderful Grant Blake all the way from his new home in Brisbane, Grant conducted 2 two-hour sessions for Tasmanian ATOD workers on Self-care during COVID-19 and the Ethical, Practical and Technological Challenges with Working from Home. The sessions were excellent investigations of the challenges that the ATOD workforce are experiencing through COVID-19.
Self-care during COVID-19 focused on recognising the personal challenges we are facing, and how to maintain your well-being during times of uncertainty, with some practical tips on monitoring your health and stress levels.
Ethical, Practical and Technological Challenges with Working from Home, went into discussions on the practical challenges of being at home, and how to ensure you are practicing safe, reliable techniques when counselling clients in your and their personal spaces.
Feedback so far from these workshops shows that attendees greatly benefited from Grant’s wisdom and the ATDC would like to thank Grant for swiftly preparing and facilitating these two workshops for our sector. If you attended either session and haven’t filled in the 2 minute survey emailed to you immediately after the session(s), we would be really appreciative if you could – thanks in advance! (email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need the survey link)
A big thank you to everyone who joined us in these fun and interactive sessions. And a huge thank you to Grant Blake for leading these sessions again for the ATDC.
