Accidental Counsellor by Lifeline Tasmania is aimed at those who would like to be able to safely and effectively support friends, family, colleagues, and peers who are in distress or experiencing a crisis.
While this course does not train participants to be counsellors, the skills learnt in the course can be applied in many contexts. It will provide participants with skills in active listening effective questioning, and de-escalation and grounding techniques.
Participants will also learn the skills for asking openly about suicide risk and responding to the answers. The course is open to anyone and no preexisting skills or knowledge are required.
Morning tea provided.
