Developed specifically for judicial leaders and emerging leaders, this program is designed to provide you with the information and skills to identify when a colleague may be in difficulty or distress and to provide appropriate and sensitive support.
Drawing upon principles of mental health first aid and courageous conversations, you will be introduced to a simple and effective framework for Judicial Peer Support.
Through a series of presentations, facilitated discussions, demonstrations and scenario-based practice, you will:
- Learn how to recognise the signs of distress in a peer
- Develop and practice skills necessary to respond to a peer in distress
- Learn to adapt the Judicial Peer Support framework to a crisis situation
- Understand how and when to refer to specialised services for additional support
- Discuss how judicial leaders can cultivate a healthy judicial culture, including in circumstances where a wellbeing concern overlaps with a performance or conduct concern
- Build skills to train others to use the Judicial Peer Support framework
