Family Liaison in a Crisis

Weds 5th – Thurs 6th Oct 1130-1500 BST // 1330-1700 EAT

Facilitator BEN PORTER answers questions about the course

If employees are involved in a crisis, and cannot speak for themselves, it is an essential responsibility of any organisation to be prepared to speak with families on their behalf.

The Family Liaison in a Crisis training will provide practical skills for engaging with family members of staff during and after a crisis. The goal of this training is to equip each participant with the knowledge of common reactions to crisis events, creating a structure for conversations with family members, and implementing the family liaison role when a critical incident occurs. The training also includes aspects of self care as effective boundaries are an essential part of the family liaison role.

This training can be either delivered face to face or as an interactive online course, with breakout rooms for participating in role plays and frequent discussions on working with families in multicultural teams.
