Stretch-Thinking Training for Emergency and Crisis Management

Stretch-Thinking Training for Emergency and Crisis Management
22 Oct
23 Oct

Description

Researchers from the Disaster Resilience Research Group at the University of Tasmania have received AWARE Grant funding to deliver two separate training sessions in partnership with WALGA, to assist Local Government recovery staff in emergency and crisis management.

Associate Professor Ben Brooks and Dr Steven Curnin from the Disaster Resilience Research Group, University of Tasmania will deliver this targeted capability development program, based on cognitive psychology and research in emergency and crisis management, with a focus on recovery scenarios. Learning how we think, and how to think beyond our usual thought processes can have positive benefits in both business as usual and in complex or high pressure situations beyond our imagination or experience.

The training includes information on the fundamentals of decision-making including cognitive biases, psychological safety and situational awareness, and will focus on creativity, divergent thinking and asking ‘unusual’ questions to generate new ideas. Attendees will participate in two discussion exercises focusing on recovery where participants will practice skills they have learnt during the training.

This is a one-day training, so please register for one session only. Numbers are limited to 20 per session.

Please note, as places are limited, we ask that only one person per Local Government is registered for the training. If you are unable to attend on the day, a proxy may be sent.


For registration enquiries, please email Marketing and Events Officer,  Anthea Astone or call 9213 2010.

This project was supported by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services through the All West Australians Reducing Emergencies (AWARE) program.
