Live online mini-training course. Are you confident in your ability to successfully manage accommodation of a worker's mental health needs? As with a physical disability, workers with mental illness can be productive and contribute to the success of the organization. Yet many managers and supervisors are confused with how to discuss and address their worker's psychological needs at work, particularly if the worker’s condition is causing disruption in the workplace. This intensive 2.5 hour live on-line mini-course answers many key questions and provides a workable strategy to give you confidence in your approach. You will learn strategies to:

  • Assess the worker’s psychological abilities and limitations in relation to the psychological demands of the job
  • Discuss accommodation and expectations with the worker in a psychologically healthy and safe manner
  • Obtain the necessary information from the worker’s health care provider
  • Monitor the worker’s progress and performance and communicate with key parties
  • Address situations where the worker’s behaviour is viewed as uncooperative, disruptive or toxic by others
