Workshops & Training

Scheepers-CCC continually develops new training programs and workshops to enhance the skills, well-being and effectiveness of employees of all levels in the organization. Some examples:

 

SENSITIVITY TRAINING - Accept, Respect, Embrace: This is a full day workshop focusing on cultural and generational differences, gender and LGBTQ2 awareness. Sexual harassment and respectful communication is addressed as well as prevention and dealing with conflict. Alternatively, a shorter version (4 hours) of the program is available upon request. 

 

A one day workshop on the DYNAMICS of CONFLICT. Participants look at intra/inter and external factors contributing to conflict in the workplace affecting peer dynamics and the home environment. The workshop is interactive and participants get the opportunity to do an assessment to see how they respond to conflict in different environments. Common scenarios are discussed and solutions explored on how to deal effectively with these conflict situations.

 

Training in PSYCHOLOGICAL HEALTH IN THE WORKPLACE. The Healthy Minds Productive Mines is a research-based program originally developed and implemented with and for the mining industry and is in particular designed for mining and related companies. The Healthy Minds Build Better program is an adaptation of the program for the construction industry. Companies are offered introduction workshops, in-depth training for Safety and HR managers and Peer Support training, which includes the teaching of the counselling micro skills such as active listening, using empathy, acknowledgement, validation, summarizing, re-framing and the practice of referring employees for additional services. Participants learn to identify and recognize common mental healthy issues and behaviours that require immediate attention.

Scheepers-CCC also developed a program that is not specifically geared toward an industry. This program Mental Health Peer Support is available to all who want to increase knowledge on mental health issues and develop confidence in talking to peers. This 2-day program will cover all skills as mentioned above.
