  • Depression/grief
  • Stress/anxiety
Lunch-and-Learn Lectures

Presentations are 30 minutes to one hour in length, and provide education/training on various topics that    enhance the quality of life for employees.

Crisis Debriefing

When devastating events occur in the nation, community or within our facility it affects everyone in the workplace emotionally. The September 11 tragedy is proof that a crisis situation can occur at any time and affect an entire nation. During such times, crisis debriefing can be provided by a master’s level (or higher) behavioral health counselor who will work with both team members and/ or families through individual or group sessions on site to help them cope. Situations where crisis debriefing may be helpful include: suicide of a team member; death of a team member through a medical diagnosis or an event such as a car accident; devastating weather damage (hurricane, fire, tornado and/or flooding); or a national security event or concern such as a terrorist attack.

Conflict Resolution Series

Conflict Resolution Workshops can provide knowledge and skills to team members about handling a workplace conflict in a professional manner. Facilitated by a master’s level therapist, the program consists of a four-part series.

  • PART 1: A PowerPoint presentation discusses reasons for conflict and how to use assertive communication and a positive mindset to overcome a current or existing issue. (1 hour)
  • PART 2: This session provides an opportunity for all parties involved to have one-on-one time with a therapist to discuss issues they believe are affecting their department. (approximately 10minutes per employee)
  • PART 3: A team-building exercise is provided for all parties at the facility or department who are related to the issues discovered in the individual interviewing session. Issues may be related to trust, gossip, equal work distribution or other concerns. (1 hour)
  • PART 4: In this session a group exercise is conducted for all parties involved. A therapist leads a therapeutic group, providing an opportunity for everyone to vent concerns in a healthy manner using the techniques learned in both the presentation and team-building exercises. (1 hour)
