We are pleased to share a new TRiM CPD (Continual Professional Development) logbook for all of our TRiM trained personnel. As the name suggests, this is for Practitioners and Managers to document their TRiM interventions and training, helping to ensure TRiM personnel stay ‘in date' and adhere to the TRiM Code of Conduct and Standards.
With mental health in the workplace becoming a priority for those organisations seeking to support their people, we offer a few words on why you should choose StRaW (our mental health in the workplace offering) over other psychological packages.
StRaW is a peer support programme that focuses on occupational stress and common mental health problems. Rather than being just an education package, as well as providing easy to understand information about the signs and symptoms of mental health issues within the workplace, StRaW also provides delegates (StRaW Practitioners) with training to allow them to conduct risk assessments with colleagues who may be experiencing difficulties and then goes further in teaching some basic enhanced mentoring techniques to ensure they begin to get the help they need. StRaW aims to foster a more resilient workforce by encouraging people to speak to each other about mental health problems and is, as you'd expect from March on Stress, based upon good science.Contact us for more details.
As you may be aware, we provide TRiM training in two ways – we go to organisations to deliver corporate courses and we also hold all comers training four times a year. Our next all comers dates see us back at the Xcentre in Exeter this April before we return to London in July:
25-26 April 2016: TRiM Practitioner training (Exeter)
27-28 April 2016: TRiM Manager training (Exeter)
4-5 July 2016: TRiM Practitioner training (London)
6-7 July 2016: TRiM Manager training (London)
We are half full at the time of writing for our April course dates, so don't delay, contact us to find out more and book your place. If you are interested in us coming to you, we'd be happy to discuss dates and availability to suit. Please drop us a line at email@example.com.
We are often asked about alternative approaches to dealing with trauma and how to treat people after an incident, with debriefing often cited, something we don't provide or support at March on Stress. So we asked our resident expert, Professor Neil Greenberg, to explain the differences between TRiM and debriefing. In short, debriefing doesn't have the evidence base of support that TRiM has – and in fact evidence suggests it can cause harm. Read Professor Greenberg's comments here.
The annual UKPTS conference is nearly upon on. This year's event (the 8th annual) takes place in Edinburgh on 11th and 12th April 2016. If you work in trauma or have an interest, this is an extremely valuable event from the UKPTS team, with a host of top speakers and workshops to choose from. Once again, attendance at the workshops will also count towards the ESTSS Certificate in Psychotraumatology

A new study has been published about the psychological intervention, Havening – with results showing that a single session of the therapy could reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Read more here.
