(If you have previously completed DMCS 715 – Strategies to Retain Workers Experiencing Mental Health Challenges within the last three years, you can receive an Exemption for this course upon presentation of an original transcript.)
This course provides a bigger picture overview of workers within their environment and offers the opportunity to integrate a systematic approach to remaining and returning to work into the workplace. Now more than ever, individuals responsible for disability management will be looked to for leadership. Evidence-based tools provide a means to be a stable force in an environment of ‘new normal’. Opportunities for problem-solving with peers, discussions, and the encouragement to identify the issues within the participant’s workplace are included, as well as communication strategies to assist with engaging in collaborative planning.
