Ac­ci­den­tal coun­sel­lor train­ing

The Australian Education Reporter - - TEACHER WELLBEING -

HU­MAN Con­nec­tions pro­vides men­tal health and well­be­ing cour­ses and re­sources to teach­ers, stu­dents, and par­ents; both on­line and in face-to-face work­shops.

The Ac­ci­den­tal Coun­sel­lor Train­ing for school staff is held across Aus­tralia and New Zealand, with more than 5000 school staff at­tend­ing in the past 10 years to rave reviews.

The Ac­ci­den­tal Coun­sel­lor Train­ing is for school staff who are not trained as pro­fes­sional coun­sel­lors, but are of­ten ‘the front line’ in re­spond­ing to the emo­tional needs of stu­dents and par­ents in schools. The Ac­ci­den­tal Coun­sel­lor Train­ing will:

• Help you feel more con­fi­dent and cer­tain in how to best re­spond to the emo­tional needs of the per­son you are sup­port­ing.

• In­crease and en­hance your own well­be­ing and self-care.

• Pro­vide “So­lu­tion Fo­cused” com­mu­ni­ca­tion and ques­tions to help the per­son dis­cover “their next best step”.

“As Deputy Prin­ci­pal of a large pri­mary school, I am of­ten faced with sit­u­a­tions where I need to pro­vide guid­ance and sup­port for stu­dents. Hav­ing recently com­pleted the course, I have al­ready used many of the strate­gies back at school and now feel more con­fi­dent and well-equipped to deal with stu­dent is­sues,” Grafton Pub­lic School Deputy Prin­ci­pal Leigh Robert­son said.

“The course was practical, ac­tion-packed and opened my mind to the many ways we can speak with and sup­port stu­dents.

“I now feel bet­ter-equipped to man­age the ‘dif­fi­cult con­ver­sa­tions’ when my school coun­sel­lor isn’t on site. The added bonus is that many of the strate­gies will prove ef­fec­tive in my per­sonal life as well.”

Along with the Ac­ci­den­tal Coun­sel­lor Train­ing we pro­vide well­be­ing ses­sions to stu­dents in both pri­mary and high school.
