We will attempt to accommodate the preferred date/location of the highest number of registrants. \nWhy it’s important:Training staff to work together safely amidst risk is a fundamental component of an organization’s duty of care to their staff. And highly trained and competent staff form the basis of quality humanitarian and development programming. \nWho it’s for:This two-day training workshop prepares NGO staff and volunteers to travel and work in low to moderate risk locations\, equipping them with the skills and knowledge to understand the risks they may face\, implement prevention measures\, and react in ways that prioritize their survival and well-being and that of their teams. This training also provides a solid understanding of safety and security risk management approaches which prepares staff for more advanced courses such as Hostile Environment Awareness Training. \nThis is a classroom training which engages participants through games\, case studies and other participatory activities. \nTopics covered include: \n\nPersonal Risk Tolerance\nGender\, Diversity and Risk\nSituational Awareness\nThe Bystander Intervention Approach\nCommunity Acceptance\nPersonal Preparedness\nMotor Vehicle Safety\nTheft\nHotel Safety\nPolitical and Civil Unrest\nTerrorism\nNatural Disasters\nKidnapping\nSexual Violence\nStress and Resilience\n\n\n\n\n URL: LOCATION:Multiple locations\, Toronto\, Ottawa\, Ottawa\, ON\, K1L6R1\, Canada CATEGORIES:CCIC ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: GEO:45.4266874;-75.6894413 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=Multiple locations Toronto Ottawa Ottawa ON K1L6R1 Canada;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=Toronto\, Ottawa:geo:-75.6894413,45.4266874 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Toronto:20200402T090000 DTEND;TZID=America/Toronto:20200402T170000 DTSTAMP:20200404T160603 CREATED:20200110T043020Z LAST-MODIFIED:20200318T195315Z SUMMARY:CANCELLED! Building Personal and Team Resilience DESCRIPTION:This workshop is for humanitarian workers\, particularly with large workloads\, responsibility for and contact with the suffering of others.\n\n\n\nWhy it’s Important \nHumanitarian workers are at high risk for developing chronic stress\, burnout\, vicarious trauma\, compassion fatigue\, and post-traumatic stress disorder. This tends to a be a risk that staff receive limited support to help manage\, and as a result staff are suffering\, and organizations are losing great people. Small changes in behaviours and attitudes can have significant impacts to psychosocial well-being\, and this course will help participants identify these changes and strategies to build resilience among staff. \nThis workshop will be facilitated by a trainer from the Headington Institute\, which provides specialized support to organizations to support the well-being of their staff. \nWho It’s For \nThis workshop is designed for anyone working in the humanitarian sector\, particularly those who have large workloads\, significant responsibility for others\, and close contact with the suffering of others. It will also be particularly relevant for anyone who deploys to support humanitarian responses. \nWhat it will cover \nThe morning will cover personal resilience\, focusing on the 7 factors of resilience that the Headington Institute has studied over 10 years and link to specific behaviours that can increase participants’ resilience in each of these 7 domains. \nThe afternoon will address resilience among teams. Recent research has shown that humanitarian settings are stressors in and of themselves\, but what amplifies stress levels is conflict within teams and conflict within the organization that supports teams in the field. This part of the workshop will review organizational and team climate research and teach practical skills to improve team dynamics in a humanitarian response. Participants will leave with a model for analyzing team dynamics and climate during deployments so that team resilience can be maximized. \n\n\n\n URL: LOCATION:CARE Canada\, 100-9 Gurdwara Road\, Ottawa\, ON\, K2E 7X6\, Canada CATEGORIES:CCIC ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: GEO:45.3363724;-75.7023363 X-APPLE-STRUCTURED-LOCATION;VALUE=URI;X-ADDRESS=CARE Canada 100-9 Gurdwara Road Ottawa ON K2E 7X6 Canada;X-APPLE-RADIUS=500;X-TITLE=100-9 Gurdwara Road:geo:-75.7023363,45.3363724 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20200403 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20200404 DTSTAMP:20200404T160603 CREATED:20200121T143908Z LAST-MODIFIED:20200121T143908Z SUMMARY:Relaunch of the RWGs DESCRIPTION:\n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n URL: LOCATION:TBD\, Canada CATEGORIES:CCIC GEO:56.130366;-106.346771 END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;VALUE=DATE:20200417 DTEND;VALUE=DATE:20200418 DTSTAMP:20200404T160603 CREATED:20200121T144047Z LAST-MODIFIED:20200121T144047Z SUMMARY:CCIC ED/CEO Lunch DESCRIPTION:\n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n URL: LOCATION:TBD\, Canada CATEGORIES:CCIC GEO:56.130366;-106.346771 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
