Professional Development

‘On the Run (Accidental) Counselling©’

In your daily work, you may regularly come into contact with colleagues, parents, children, carers and families, all who have different needs and expectations.  While you are not a formally trained counsellor, you may often find yourself in situations where you need to respond to a colleague, a client or a parent’s distress, concerns or strong emotions. During these extraordinarily challenging times, you may be aware of an increasing level of stress and angst throughout all of our communities. How can you make a positive difference to those in need?

‘On the Run (Accidental) Counselling©’ is designed to provide you with an overview of the basic skills and confidence needed to respond to more confidently during these times.

 REGISTER NOW! PLACES ARE STRICTLY LIMITED TO ENSURE THAT YOU EXPERIENCE A HIGH LEVEL OF ENGAGEMENT AND INTERACTIVITY.

 Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the roles and responsibilities of the Accidental Counsellor;
  • Explore appropriate responses to clients who are distressed, and
  • Build on communication and response skills.

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.

Acknowledgement

LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
