This training is aimed at experienced Peer Supporters and TRiM Practitioners who will be effective at training further Peer Supporters and TRiM Practitioners within their own force. You will be trained in the following:

Demobilisation

Demobilisation is a primary stress prevention technique that takes place immediately after a traumatic incident and before employees return to normal duties or go home.  Officers and staff in high risk roles should be demobilised at the end of every shift, this should take around 5-10 minutes.

Defusing

Defusing is a psychological first aid tool that should be available in the first few days following exposure to a traumatic incident.  This procedure is useful in helping to assess who might need further help and support.

Defusing is a small group process but is much less structured and is normally aimed at the core working group that has been most affected by an incident.  Typically, groups of 6-8 people can be brought together with a defuser. Where there is only one person involved, there can be an individual session which can last up to 20 minutes.

The workshop is available at the following dates and venues:

  • Thursday 5 March 2020 – The Principle Hotel, York
  • Tuesday 31 March – Park Royal Hotel, Warrington

Spaces are limited and are on a first come, first served basis. The event counts for 6 hours toward your Continuous Professional Development.
