Services For Workplaces
Traumatic events can happen just about anywhere.
Many of the people that we work with have experienced workplace trauma. When an employee experiences stress or trauma as a result of their job, the long-term impacts can be devastating. The employee may struggle to attend work and the employer may feel helpless in knowing how to adequately support their worker.
At Rising Tides, we understand the impacts of stress and trauma on individuals and groups. We work with both employers and employees to prevent and reduce the impact of a experiencing a trauma at work. If a psychological injury does occur, we can offer the treatment that is needed.
The best way to manage the impact of stress and trauma is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. Although not all traumatic events are preventable, there are steps that you can take to make your working environment more psychologically safe. This is particularly true in workplaces where exposure to trauma is more likely to occur. We work closely with our community partners to find the services that are right for your team.
Workshops & Guest Speaking
If you are interested in having us work with your group, we can organize a session or workshop that is customized to meet your specific needs. We have delivered workshops on a variety of topics including education on the types of trauma, impact and responses to traumatic events, coping strategies to manage stress. We can also offer strategies to support teams after a traumatic event has occurred. We can provide your group with the support and information you need to create psychologically safe workplaces and strategies to promote resilience.
If you are looking for a guest speaker for your event, we can also prepare a personalized session on the trauma related topic of your choosing.
If you are looking for ways to support your employees after a traumatic event in the workplace traumatic, we offer G-TEP which is a specific type of EMDR intervention. G-TEP, or Group-Traumatic Episode Protocol is offered to small and larger groups in the aftermath of a traumatic event. Participants are guided in processing the traumatic material without having to share any of the negative details aloud with other participants.
It is not necessary that participants have experienced the same trauma as there is no sharing of information related to the trauma. This is a preventative session and includes skill development that can be used after the session. It can also help participants shift traumatic memories towards healing and prevent potential longer term impacts after exposure to trauma. A G-TEP session requires some pre-screening in the form of questionnaires and possibly, follow up and referrals after the G-TEP session.
If you’d like to learn more about G-TEP, you can watch a webinar on the topic that we created here.
