Group Trainings

The Power of One: 2017 Group Format Training

This training discusses how the actions and body language of those around us drives our inner dialogue and—at times—stops us from taking action. Redwoods staff then explore how this learning applies to the topics of supervision, aquatic safety and child sexual abuse prevention.

After the training, staff will know how their surroundings affect their decisions, they will look for social cues influencing their thought process and they will feel empowered to do something, even in times of uncertainty and pressure.

The video includes discussion exercises focused on five real-world incidents that happened at customer organizations.

The full training video is available to watch online. If you do not have internet access, we will mail you a copy of the DVD at no cost.
