The ‘Emotional Resilience & Wellbeing program for Emergency Services personnel’ (also known as the ‘Triple Zero ‘000’ Resilience Program’ in Australia), is an ONLINE program for Police, Firefighters, & Paramedics / Ambulance Officers, & Emergency Department Health Care professionals.
The aim of the program is to help officers keep doing the job they love for as long as they can, whilst strengthening their resilience & gaining more fulfilment in their professional & personal lives.
By applying the tools & strategies in the program on a regular basis, it’s expected that officers will be able to better mentally cope when faced with challenging situations in their professional & personal lives.
In the long term, it’s anticipated that the program will not only help to build resilience & create a healthier wellbeing amongst staff, but also help to decrease the rate of depression, PTSD, & suicide in the industry.
‘Survive & Thrive’ – Coping strategies for high stress environments (1day)
This 1 day workshop is for any organisation where it’s a ‘high stress’ environment or culture.
‘Stress’ & lack of coping skills, is literally killing us.
This workshop gives participants an awareness of stress & burnout, & the effects it can have on our bodies. It gives simple, practical, & relevant coping skills & strategies, that will help to create more positive mindsets, as well as happier and healthier human beings!
‘Coping strategies for teens’
Being a teenager these days can be pretty ‘full on’.
In this 2hr workshop, Di has a way of getting the teens to really ‘relate’ to her – as she shares some raw & honest realities of her own teenage & young adult challenges, & some simple yet effective coping strategies that she wished she’d known when she was their age!
*Di is also available for individual & small group coaching sessions upon request.
‘Happy, Kind, & Healthy Minds’
(school based program)
Di’s philosophy is to empower & teach emotional resilience to children when they’re young, to help prevent the rate of depression & suicide in later years.
This school based program (which has been approved as part of Beyond Blue’s ‘National Education Initiative’) is a 90min self-paced package for teachers, that they can then teach/deliver it to their students (suggested to deliver for 1 day / week over 3 weeks, or 1/2 day / week over 6wks)*. This program was the basis of Di’s online best-selling book:
‘Icebreakers: How to empower, inspire, & motivate your team, through step-by-step activities that boost confidence, resilience, & create happier individuals‘.
*Program structure may be adapted to suit*
What an amazing program!!
He had been having suicidal thoughts, but after the first session with Di, he actively agreed to attend a further workshop!
In his words “That made more sense to me in two hours than the years of counselling have”
For the first time in years he actually initiated a conversation about how he was feeling with us.
Thank you so much for running such a great ( and much needed) program Di, and we look forward to attending more of your workshops. Maree H. - Bahrs Scrub
