Emotional Skills Support Workshop

Through this Emotional Skills Support Workshop, the CoEJ Wellbeing Network is aims to enable you to support people in the community. This can include those supporting family, co-workers, friends, community members, volunteers making calls to vulnerable people, or even those who simply want to learn some new skills and practice them.

1. Stress Container Model
2. ALGEE Model for Wellbeing Triage
3. Phone Communication Skills
4. Questioning Skills
