Many government and non-government organisations are now using our evidence-based frameworks in their work of providing support to young people with mental health challenges.
If your role is providing support to young people with mental health challenges, we provide customised programs to focus on the specific challenges you and/or your organisation is having. We can deliver the training to you in person (at your or our venue) or via Zoom.
The ‘Coach 2 Cope’ programs and associated ‘Safety and Calming Plan Toolkit’ will give you practical skills and tools to assist you when the young people in your care need you most.
You will learn the latest evidence based psychological first aid (TAR3 framework) and how to practically apply it when the young people you support are experiencing distress of any kind. Alternatively, you can use the processes in a preventive capacity and enhance your connection with young people to support their overall mental wellbeing.
What others have to say;
Dr Stephen Spencer PhD presented a work shop in Wagga to the
Paediatric department. I organised the event with Stephen and his team at Equi Energy Youth.
The feedback following the event was extremely positive.
Highlights were the broad Coach to Cope framework for all health workers engaged in responding to adolescents in emotional distress.
This methodology if accepted across all clinicians involved in adolescent care will enable greater teamwork and a consistent approach to assess and care for adolescents in distress.
Stephen has a wealth of experience and illustrates his approach with easily recognisable clinical examples.
Many of the attendees enjoyed being able to discuss patient journeys and how a change to the care model may make a significant difference to outcomes.
I would thoroughly recommend this workshop to all clinicians looking after adolescents with emotional distress on an in-patient, out-patient or casual basis.
