Mentally Healthy Practitioners and Workplaces








Psychological health and safety is about protecting the psychological health of workers, in the same way that we protect their physical health.

This is particularly important for professionals providing mental health support in hospital, community, school, community and residential programs settings who are often exposed to the effects of stress and secondary trauma.

Our training delivers practical strategies that professionals can implement while on shift, with coworkers, and in their personal lives.

All techniques taught are highly effective therapeutic approaches that can be applied when working with clients in a therapeutic setting too!


Psychosocial Hazards

Psychosocial hazards in workplaces increase the risk of psychological or physical harm.

These include:

Poor Support
Traumatic events 
Violence and aggression
Remote or isolated work
Poor organisational justice


Empowering the Helping Professional

Creating safety to enhance well-being in practitioners, clients and mentally healthy workplaces

Our one-day workshop is designed to assist individuals in the mental health and related helping fields in acquiring techniques to create safety, mitigate stress and combat burnout. 

Establishing a sense of safety is a fundamental necessity for any practitioner, helper or organisation offering mental health support to individuals dealing with stress, trauma, shame and other susceptibilities. The workshop provides an integrative, holistic, and trauma-conscious approach to assist practitioners in proactively embedding sustainable self-care practices that align with the person-practitioner-work environment. It tackles the essential requirements that practitioners, helpers, and organisations have regarding mentally healthy workplaces and its connection to resilience and long-term effectiveness amidst daily encounters with trauma-inducing circumstances, thereby minimising the impact of psychosocial hazards, compassion fatigue and burnout.

The workshop places emphasis on delivering practical strategies that professionals can implement while on shift, with coworkers, and in their personal lives. Furthermore, all techniques taught are highly effective therapeutic approaches that can be applied when working with clients in a therapeutic setting. 


Who Should Attend?

This workshop is for all practitioners, helping professionals and organisations exposed to the effects of stress and secondary trauma. It provides a portfolio of skills that supports emotion regulation and recovery from secondary trauma exposure and also that enhances the experience of the helping encounter. This workshop is appropriate for any environment that involves mental health support: hospital, community, school, community, residential programs, home etc. Therefore, the content is well-suited for clinicians, counsellors, educators, and other professionals in the helping field.
