Micro-Interventions in the Workplace, Part 1
Time & Location
About the Event
Dr. Ursula Whiteside will introduce this two-hour, self-paced course that is designed to provide a practical and effective approach to supporting individuals experiencing loneliness, stress, mental health and substance-use struggles (including suicidal thoughts). Micro-interventions are brief, evidence-based strategies designed to provide immediate support. The course is also about improving our own ability to cope more effectively with stress and to manage our important relationships. Dr. Whiteside will cover how these micro-interventions can be best implemented in the workplace.
