Getting Grounded: An experiential workshop for direct service providers who work with clients who are overwhelmed, helpless and scared

Michel Jones, MSW, RSW
presented by Hincks-Dellcrest Institute

In direct service work we often work with clients who are stuck or trapped in complicated emotional and social situations which often lead them to feel overwhelmed, helpless and scared. We may not be able to turn these difficulties around in the short run. Clients are then faced with having to hang on and weather through whatever adversity comes their way or sink under the strain. This workshop will provide practical tools that front-line workers can use to help their clients stabilize and regain a sense of self-control and self-efficacy as they navigate these challenges. In this experiential workshop we will look at key techniques and strategies for grounding clients. Whether the client is a first time user of a service (drop in centre, shelter) or a frequent consumer (severe and persistent mental health, residential program) this workshop will offer clear, straightforward strategies for base-line stabilization.

In this workshop we will review:
• Breath retraining
• Radical Acceptance
• Distraction from Self-Destructive Behavior
• Self-Soothing Skills
• Relaxation techniques
• Visualization protocols
• Imagery rescripting

This is an experiential workshop be prepared to work (and have fun!)
