Trauma Response Planning
This remotely delivered, interactive, 7-part course helps business leaders create a plan for what to do in the immediate hours following an emergency situation and beyond. While no one wants to think about a Violent Critical Incident occurring in their workplace, it can be helpful to be prepared to care for the emotional health of those affected.
Your team will learn how to apply healthy coping mechanisms and healing activities for dealing with workplace trauma, and construct a plan for post-incident management including how to handle the media, memorials, anniversaries, and safety drills.
The Navigate360 Trauma Response course includes downloadable resources to complete for documentation and covers the following modules:
- Defining Trauma
- Preparedness Timeline
- Coping and Healing
- Media Coverage
- Moving On
- Safety Drills After a Violent Critical Incident
Defining trauma is the first step in becoming a trauma-informed workplace. The e-Learning course explains what trauma is and how the overwhelming stress from a Violent Critical Incident can bring out intense feelings and exceed a person’s ability to cope. Upon course completion, your staff will be able to identify and respond to unhealthy coping behaviors in the workplace before they turn into long-term impacts for the victim or your organization
Unhealthy coping behaviors may include:
- Drastic changes in physical appearance
- Weight gain/loss
- Decrease in work performance
- Attendance issues
- Physically or verbally aggressive behavior
- Use of illegal substances
- Sudden change in sleeping habits
- Expressing thoughts/feelings of survivors’ guilt
Two million people are affected by workplace violence every year. Workplace trauma extends well beyond a single victim – it can impact shareholders, customers and an entire community. But a workplace informed about trauma response, with an effective recovery plan, is the key to helping both people and the business thrive.
The Navigate360 Trauma Response course gives you the specific information and guidelines you need to get back to business quickly after an incident. You’ll design a plan specific to your organization, your staff and your office culture while learning to acknowledge emotions and help your team cope.
Completing this course helps you protect employee well-being and the financial health and continuity of the business.
