Bush Support Services Workshops
Bush Support Services offers a comprehensive portfolio of resilience-building workshops aimed at improving the psychological, social and emotional wellbeing of those working in the bush. These workshops are skills-based with the primary goal of sustaining people and enabling them to not only survive, but to thrive whilst working in the remote context.
Facilitators are experienced psychologists who are living and working in rural and remote locations around Australia and have many years experience in the provision of workshops in remote locations including Torres Strait Islands, Cocos and Christmas Island, Kimberley, Alice Springs, Gove, North and West Queensland and outback NSW.
The workshop portfolio includes 4 tiers of complementary workshops that can be combined or built upon to tailor to the needs of individual organisations. These workshops are ideal for workplaces wanting to orientate staff to working remote including mining companies, rural and remote GP’s associations, defence and police forces, ambulance officers, teaching staff, medicare locals and medical and nursing associations.
The aim of the workshop is to allow participants to explore remote health workplace culture and to develop alternative ways of responding to workplace conflict through a restorative framework.
In this course you can explore some different ways of handling conflict, including issues such as expressing your feelings, building self-confidence and improving communication. The module is presented in seven discrete sections which contain background reading material together with suggested exercises which are to be completed before advancing to the next Learning Package.
