Compassion to Action – In order to decrease instances of intensive intervention and create a more strength-based approach we need to first implement preventative and responsive strategies in our interactions with vulnerable and marginalized individuals. Research has shown that supportive relationship-based interventions can decrease recidivism and increase social connections that lead to long term positive change. This training will equip professionals with awareness and strategies around identifying needs, mitigating risks and increasing connections with the vulnerable populations that frequent their space.
Social Compass – exits to explore physical, social and emotional challenges that employees and employers may be experiencing when returning to the workplace during the pandemic. It is an opportunity to explore ways to help workplace communities identify areas in which teams may be struggling to reconnect after Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted.
