    An ADRIA Professional Development Event 


    Restoring the Workplace After an Inconclusive  Harassment Investigation

    Positive relationships with others at work are an essential part of one’s job and career.  When there is a rupture in work relationships – such as those caused by a harassment investigation – “Employee-Centered Resolution” processes can be used to supportively coach employees to regain their footing after conflict.

    Employee-Centered Resolution may help employees present their views, think about what they are saying, what is being said by the other, and to make their own decisions on how to understand the situation and their options.  Employee Centered Resolution processes can also become an integral step in reengaging and reintegrating employees after a harassment investigation.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    Through lecture, case study discussions, role-plays, and individual exercises, participants in this session will:

    • Be able to compare and contrast the problem-solving mediation approach to that of the “Employee-Centered Resolution” process
    • Practice interventions associated with the “Employee-Centered Resolution” process
    • Learn skills needed to follow the parties lead, amplify conversations, and allow the parties to decide
    • Learn about the link between workplace- strained relationships and psychological distress
    • Appreciate that bystanders and witnesses are vulnerable to negative responses and even illness when working in a context where there are abusive or perceived abusive interactions

    BACKGROUND

    Employee-Centered Resolution processes are based in self-determination theory (SDT) – a framework that reasons how an individual’s psychological needs for autonomy, competence, and relatedness – correlates positively to job satisfaction, better health and increased productivity (Gomez-Baya & Lucia-Casademunt, 2018).  It also highlights the importance of work relations that are friendly and supportive.

    Strained relations are inconsistent with productive work, and they also impact employee feelings toward other co-workers and the organization as a whole. Extreme examples of strained workplace relationships  often include allegations of abusive interactions such as harassment, yelling and bullying, as well as physical and sexual advances (Trépanier, Fernet & Austin, 2013). Those who target other employees, employees on the receiving end, or who perceive they are being treated poorly experience poor workplace health. The repercussions for the employees involved, as well as the organization, are significant and include lost time, decreased productivity, and employee turnover (Leiter, Frizzell, Harvie, & Churchill, 2001).

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS TRAINING:

    • Mediators
    • HR professionals, Managers, Directors
    • Organizational (OD) consultants
    • EAP Personnel
    • Trainers
    • Counsellors

    FACILITATOR – Heidi Erisman – MC, MBA, BGS (Psych)

    Heidi Erisman, MC MBA BGS (Psych), is a senior associate with INSIGHT Corporate Care and a counselling therapist with INSIGHT Psychological. Her professional background includes 12 years as a mental health therapist and twenty years as an Executive Director for not-for-profit and public sector organizations. She has experience and training in assessing and intervening in dysfunctional conflict and performance deterioration, promoting employee wellness and workplace psychological health, and addressing workplace harassment, bullying and violence.

    On behalf of INSIGHT Corporate Care, Heidi is a frequent lecturer and trainer for companies who are concerned about the new relevant legislation and changes to Alberta’s Occupational Health and Safety Act designed to protect the health and well-being of working Albertans. Heidi offers training that examines the legislation and provides employers and employees with strategies to address workplace harassment, bullying, and violence. Heidi teaches evidence-based approaches designed to cultivate a psychologically healthy workplace environment.

    You are invited to attend our online Annual General Meeting:

    June 11, 2020 at 6pm 
    Online via Zoom


    With an opening keynote address from the Honourable Mary Moreau, Chief Justice of Alberta’s Court of Queen’s Bench.

     Mark your calendar for 6pm Thursday, June 11th.  While ADRIA normally gathers for Wine & Cheese in Calgary & Edmonton for a connected AGM, it should come as no surprise that this year’s AGM will be entirely online. 

    ADRIA’s formal AGM proceedings are usually concluded efficiently in just an hour, and this is your very best opportunity to meet the 2020/21 Board of Directors, learn how the society fared in 2019, and get an update on the changes underway for 2020 in the face of this unprecedented disruption. 

    We suggest you bring your own wine & cheese this year, and the meeting will kick off at 6:00 pm with an opening keynote address from the Chief Justice, followed by the formal AGM (6:30 - 7:30 pm) and an extended Q& A (7:30 - 8:00 pm) with the Board & staff – all using Zoom technology.  Please plan to log into Zoom 10-15 minutes early, as Chief Justice Moreau's address will commence sharply at 6:00 p.m.

    Please plan to be there, and to continue supporting your hardworking Directors and dedicated staff.  We remain strong together. 

    We look forward to an excellent at-home AGM, 2020-style!

    An ADRIA Event in partnership with FOAJ



    WE HAVE ADAPTED!  In light of current COVID events we have taken our Luncheon & Learning events online.  This is new for us but we wish to keep connected and to continue to share opportunities with our members and the public. 


    Please plan to join us to hear Ry Moran, Director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation discuss the important work of this organization.

    The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation

    A shared vision held by those affected by Indian residential schools was to create a place of learning and dialogue where the truths of their experiences were honoured and kept safe for future generations. They wanted their families, communities and all of Canada to learn from these hard lessons so they would not be repeated. They wanted to share the wisdom of the Elders and Traditional Knowledge Keepers on how to create just and peaceful relationships amongst diverse peoples. They knew that Reconciliation is not only about the past; it is about the future that all Canadians will forge together. This vision is the legacy gift to all of Canada.  The NCTR was established to provide a permanent home for all statements, documents, and other materials gathered by the TRC.  The NCTR works to ensure that:

    • former students and their families have access to their own history;
    • educators can share the Indian Residential School history with future generations of students;
    • researchers can more deeply explore the Residential School experience;
    • the public can access historical records and other materials to help foster reconciliation and healing; and
    • the history and legacy of the residential school system are never forgotten


    As the first Director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR), it is Ry Moran’s job to guide the creation of an enduring national treasure – a dynamic Indigenous archive built on integrity, trust and dignity. Ry came to the centre directly from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC). On the TRC’s behalf, he facilitated the gathering of nearly 7,000 video/audio-recorded statements of former residential school students and others affected by the residential school system. He was also responsible for gathering the documentary history of the residential school system from more than 20 government departments and nearly 100 church archives – millions of records in all.

    Before joining the TRC, Ry was the founder and president of YellowTilt Productions, which delivered services in a variety of areas including Aboriginal language presentation and oral history. He has hosted internationally broadcast television programs, produced national cultural events, and written and produced original music for children’s television. Ry’s professional skills and creativity have earned him many awards, including a National Aboriginal Role Model Award, and a Canadian Aboriginal Music Award. Ry is a proud member of the Métis Nation.

    The potential for conflict is everywhere, and escalation and high conflict behaviours are almost unavoidable for many professionals working in conflict resolution. Mediators, and allied professionals, working with parties involved in potentially high conflict mediations need to understand and manage complexity, emotional intensity, and challenges that may arise during a mediation.

    Using a trauma informed practice perspective, this course prepares mediators to manage aspects of high conflict mediations, including safety screening, dealing with parties experiencing poor mental health, addictions and substance use issues, strong emotions, and challenging behaviours associated with personality disorders.   Mediators will be equipped with the tools to determine whether to proceed and, if so, to mediate what can be high conflict discussions.
