This one-day interactive workshop aims to develop the knowledge and skills of human services workers in rural areas to effectively support people who are distressed. The course is mainly for those who are not trained counsellors and who are not in counselling roles, however frequently find themselves having to use counselling skills due to the nature of their roles in drought-affected communities.

  • Explore the overlap between their key work responsibilities and “accidental”
  • Explore the influence of personal values on the communication process
  • Explore the importance of empathetic response to support distress regulation
