This workshop is presented by Dr Annemaree Bickerton Family Psychiatrist and Toni Garretty Clinical Coordinator for the Family & Carer Mental Health Program Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District. The event is open to those working in mental health, generalist health, drug and alcohol, schools, FaCS, housing, emergency services and other key government and non - government community agency workers. The training introduces participants to the “Staying Connected When Emotions Run High” frameworks and provides an overview of the carer intervention, including greater insight into the complexities of people who experience emotion dysregulation and other related conditions. It will be relevant if you support someone 12yrs - 100yrs who: has relationship difficulties; demonstrates changing emotions or overwhelming feelings and /or displays impulsive and destructive behaviours i.e. cutting, or are supporting their families. The presentation showcases a film with 2 fictional characters demonstrating the ‘four carer dances’ and ‘five key relationship strategies’ including the concept of "Safety Planning Like a Fire Drill" to promote safety when distress or risk escalates. The day is interactive and all participants are provided a workbook and certificate of attendance. The workshop has been delivered to over 4,000 professionals from various services across NSW with outstanding evaluations.
