The training approach while participative and experiential is invitational, with the sensitive nature of the issues being covered and the fact that they may resonate for participants acknowledged.  Participation is encouraged but without pressure. The methods used include group discussion, lecture, case studies, videos, role plays, and experiential exercises. There is a strong theme throughout of the importance of developing resourcing strategies for the worker, and the prevention of vicarious traumatisation and burnout.
