Trauma Risk Management – Managers Course

Duration: 2 days

Delivery Method: Face to Face or Virtual 

Course Capacity: Variable

Course Description

Where Trauma risk management (TRiM) is implemented in organisations, it is crucial that that there is management backing and coherent policy and leadership around TRiM interventions. If these elements are not present, the initiative is likely to fail. TRiM managers are the vital glue that brings together TRiM Practitioners, management and other areas of the organisation involved in wellbeing or welfare.

The emphasis of the TRiM Managers course is on planning and supervising responses to traumatic events and developing risk assessment skills to an advanced level. Delegates on this course must already be qualified as TRiM Practitioners.

Learning how to supervise TRiM practitioners, manage their welfare and support is crucial. TRiM Managers learn how to build effective and coherent TRiM teams and how to apply best practice.
