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.

Site visit to Melbourne & Olympic Parks
Enjoy the chance to see inside the safety systems of some of Melbourne’s biggest event and sporting venues with Scott McMillan, Director of Safety at Melbourne & Olympic Parks on 9 July.
Melbourne & Olympic Parks (M&OP) is home to seven national, elite sporting teams and welcomes millions of visitors annually. The precinct is acclaimed for hosting the Australian Open, a range of sporting codes, as well as top international acts and musicians.
On the site visit, Scott will show the safety side of what goes into putting on some of its main sporting events. This includes discussing the challenge of providing safe delivery, in a short time frame and on a very large scale.

About the Venue:

The original Olympic Park sporting arena, established in 1933, was demolished in 1946 for redevelopment to prepare the precinct to host field hockey and cycling events during the 1956 Olympic Games. By 1988, another significant redevelopment was underway to establish a purpose-built, multi-venue National Tennis Centre to host the Australian Open. In 2006 the precinct hosted various events for the Commonwealth Games.
Today the precinct is home to six of Melbourne’s premier venues: Rod Laver Arena, Margaret Court Arena, John Cain Arena, AAMI Park, CENTREPIECE and Kia Arena. A $972 million-dollar Melbourne Park Redevelopment has recently been completed by the Victorian Government.
