Stress, anxiety and depression often result in staff burnout. Repeatedly listening to people's problems can cause vicarious trauma and a feeling of helplessness





This training is Maslow based and includes the reflective listening skills that telephone crisis-line operators learn - before they can start listening to people's problems


It is conversational with roleplay and encourages discussion


Upskilling people who regularly deal with the public is proving to be a very valuable early intervention strategy


Using these skills also protects from possible anxiety and depression caused by vicarious trauma and the need to 'fix things'


All of our slide decks are free to use

(No downloads or sign-ups required)


We use Google Slides (many with short videos and presenter notes) and it's ideal for small groups
