[CANCELLED] Re-Engineering Our Workplace: Can You Address Signs of Distress?

Nov 8

This event has passed.

Tuesday, November 8, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Some members of the Pratt community have personal experience with the challenges of identifying resources when seeking to support others with acute and long-term well-being needs. In addition to modeling health behaviors, managers and faculty advisors should be prepared to check on the student/employees' status, communicate the resources available, and create a climate where well-being is prioritized and getting help is destigmatized. In this first of a series of Human Resource professional development opportunities designed to re-engineer Pratt's workplace, we will present the resources available to faculty and staff to assist in addressing mental health needs of faculty, staff, and students. Counseling and Psychiatrics Services (CAPS) TRAC Lead Lia Gilmore, MSW, LCSW will discuss mental health care for Duke students, signs of distress, the resources available, and suggested ways that faculty and staff can intervene. Nichole Capitanio, Director of Duke's Personal Assistance Service (PAS) will provide an overview of PAS as a service. She will discuss how to determine when help is needed, and how to refer a staff member to PAS (having the conversation) based on employee work performance or behaviors of concern. Nichole will also discuss when to refer a staff member for a fit for duty assessment at Employee Occupational Health and Wellness.
