Workplace Psychological First Aid

Presentation by: Rhonda Brand, Organisational Psychologist, Xchanging

Presentation package now available (members only)

Stress can be both positive and negative (distress). When an event occurs in a workplace that causes distress, psychological first aid is an effective tool for assisting workers to deal with it. That was the topic of a talk to Central Safety Group on November 13, 2012 by Rhonda Brand, Organisational Psychologist at Xchanging.
Rhonda outlined the many and various responses to a critical incident that a person may experience, ranging from physiological to psychological, emotional and behavioural. She then spoke about psychological first aid, what it involves and what it is not. Rhonda also gave examples of the application of psychological first aid to particular organisations.

The presenter:

Rhonda became Psychologist/Organisational Development Consultant for Xchanging in 2006. During this time she has been involved in the development, implementation and evaluation of targeted interventions to reduce incidents and severity of psychological injuries across Victorian workplaces. Her work was recognised at the 2010 WorkSafe Awards in the category of Best OHS solution in the Public Sector & Community Services. The framework Rhonda developed was the first stress prevention model recognised in 22 years of the prestigious safety awards. Rhonda has a BA in Psychology & Sociology from Monash University as well as a Graduate Diploma in Applied Psychology/Organisational Psychology from Victoria University.

OHS and Social Sustainability
As the concept of social sustainability becomes more important, businesses and organisations are treating people more as an asset to be valued and looked after.
How can OHS practitioners support their businesses in building and maintaining social sustainability? Phil Lovelock has some answers when he presents a model for doing this in a CSG lunchtime Zoom talk on 9th August.
He will outline a 5-point action plan with elements that reflect the growth and maturity of OHS as a profession. It will cover people, workplace environment, systems, the organisation and external stakeholders.
It is a new, broader approach to the OHS role that will be useful for anyone facing this challenge.
