    Mental Health First Aid

    Mental illnesses such as depression are associated with higher rates of disability and unemployment. Depression interferes with a person’s ability to complete physical job tasks about 20% of the time and reduces cognitive performance about 35% of the time. Only 57% of employees who report moderate depression and 40% of those who report severe depression receive treatment to control depression symptoms. Even after taking other health risks—like smoking and obesity—into account, employees at high risk of depression had the highest health care costs during the 3 years after an initial health risk assessment.

    Negotiation and Conflict Resolution

    Conflict is an inevitable part of human communication and can be expected when different people with different ideas must collaborate to complete a singular task. The sharing of ideas, attitudes, opinions and beliefs can be a challenge when people do not initially agree. When conflicts are resolved, employees see benefits in the form of new ideas, better solutions and improved working relationships. On the other hand, unresolved conflict costs U.S. companies $359 billion dollars a year in paid hours. This workshop provides strategies to help workers re-frame conflict as a natural and beneficial part of the creative process. We will offer methods to help manage conflict proactively. The learner will leave this workshop empowered with a better understanding of their own communication style and how to use if for effective collaboration with others.
