Participants will explore what it means to provide a safe and welcoming experience to the people who access sexual assault, women’s health and wellbeing and domestic violence services.
We will identify what successful interactions look, feel and sound like – building on the human connection aspect whilst simultaneously meeting the organisational requirements of access to the service. We will gain further insights into what this means from a service user perspective and the role first point of contact workers can play in creating this positive environment.
We will also gain insights into the personal strengths and resources that shape the responses that we bring to our work. This will enable us to enhance our skills to manage potentially challenging interactions, to care for ourselves and to manage the essential organisational requirements of service access.
This will be an interactive workshop. Participants will engage in both individual and group activities to gain practical understanding of the concepts explored and to learn from each other.
