Victimology is the study of theories of victimization and the degree of risk a person has of becoming a ‘Victim’ because of his or her personal, professional, or social life. It further evaluates the Victim and gains intimate knowledge of the Victim’s habits and lifestyle to provide reasons why this particular ‘Victim’ was chosen at a given time and place. Victimology is defined as the study of the ways in which the behavior of crime victims may have led to or contributed to their victimization.
Assertiveness is a method of critical thinking, where an individual speaks up in defense of their views or considering erroneous information. Assertive people can be outspoken and analyze information and point out areas of information lacking substance, details, or evidence. Assertiveness supports creative thinking and effective communication. It is considered a critical life skill and recommended for children to develop. Assertiveness is a communication skill that can be taught, and the skills of assertive communication effectively learned. First, the absence of assertiveness can make you feel that you are trapped, and not living your life to its full potential. You feel like a puppet, operating on strings controlled by someone else. You feel like you are at the mercy of someone else. Do you avoid people because you do not know what to say? Do people take advantage of you because you just cannot say what is on your mind? Do people criticize you and you have nothing to say in return? Do you hesitate to express your opinions or thoughts? Is it difficult for you to communicate or interact with authority? If so, you have a passive mindset. Being assertive means that you can stand firm when you need to. But it does not mean that you get to exercise your rights all the time and win every time. Assertiveness is all about balance. You can be straightforward with your needs, while considering the rights, needs, and wants of others. When you are assertive, you ask confidently for what you want, but do not throw a tantrum when you do not get it. You make your statements firmly and fairly but understand that someone else may have a different point of view. Assertive behavior is a skill that can be learned, and in this course, we give you the guidelines to become assertive in every area of your life. Feel confident in making important decisions. Take your life back. What you’ll learn: Understand what assertiveness and assertive communication is Understand the benefits and risks of being assertive Identify the different personality styles you deal with every day Understand how to cultivate an assertive mindset Know and identify the basics of assertive techniques and skills for you to use Identify the different types of criticism and learn how to deal with it positively and constructively
The way people cope as victims of a traumatic event, like an accident, natural disaster, or crime, depend largely on their experiences immediately following the event. As a First Responder on the scene, you are usually the first person to approach victims. For this reason, you are in a unique position to help victims cope with the immediate trauma of the event and to help restore their sense of security and control over their lives. It is not just law enforcement officers or Medical Emergency Personnel who are on the scene first. Most often, it is a bystander, a friend, or a family member who was in the vicinity, or was called by the victim. Trauma affects everyone differently. This includes one-time, multiple, or long-lasting repetitive events. The impact of trauma can be subtle, dangerous, or outright destructive. How an event affects an individual depends on many factors, including characteristics of the individual, the type and characteristics of the event(s), developmental processes, the meaning of the trauma, and sociocultural factors. Some individuals may clearly display criteria associated with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but many more individuals will exhibit resilient responses or brief subclinical symptoms or consequences that fall outside of diagnostic criteria. By approaching victims appropriately, you will gain their trust and cooperation. Victims may then be more willing to provide detailed information about the incident or crime to officers and later to investigators and prosecutors, which, in turn, will lead to the conviction of more criminals. Remember that you are there for the victim; the victim is not there for you. You can help victims by understanding the three major needs they have after an incident occurred: the need to feel safe; the need to express their emotions; and the need to know “what comes next” after their victimization. The information in this course is designed to show you how to meet these needs. In this course, we discuss: Brief definition of trauma Impact of trauma Victim-centered approach How we normally process information and how it is affected by trauma Automatic Immediate Stress Response Different types of Incidents and Victims Three major needs of every victim Dealing with Responder Stress What makes this course different? We believe in providing high-quality training. That way, we can empower so many more people. Over the years, I have responded to many disaster events, natural disasters, and man-made disasters, like bombs, bomb threats, armed robberies, shootings, home invasions, etc. Through all this, I noticed that everyone who arrives at the scene has a specific purpose, whether it be law enforcement, medical response, etc., and each one pursues that purpose. But, although the victims are spoken to, not much attention is given to the victim itself, and the state of mind in the moment directly after the incident. Many who do speak to the victims, neglect to consider the traumatic state of mind of the victim, which, in turn, can cause the trauma seriously affect the state of mind after a period of time when most people have “recovered.” The way we respond to victims immediately after the occurrence of the event, plays a major role in the success of mental recovery and emotional healing after the incident. What you’ll learn: Empower individuals to respond to victims’ needs immediately after the event. Equip responders with the necessary basic skill and knowledge to assist victims. Inspire the community and First Responders to reach out to victims immediately after the event. Designed to also support mental health professionals who seek to engage in prevention, investigation, and intervention on behalf of victims. Who this course is for: Emergency Response Personnel Human Resources Department Personnel Concerned Citizens Religious Leaders Trauma Counsellors and Therapists
The purpose of occupational health and safety (OHS) is to make sure that all employees are provided with a workplace that is safe and unlikely to pose a risk to their health. Health and Safety Representatives often act as the liaison between senior management and employees, and may be responsible for, amongst other things: Assisting the Health and Safety Officer. Attending Health and Safety Committee meetings. Identifying hazards and risks in the workplace. Listening to and investigating OHS-related complaints from employees. Assisting with the investigation of accidents that occur in the workplace. Making OHS-related suggestions to senior management and/or the Health and Safety Officer. The role of Safety Representative is not always a full-time job. This means that Safety Representatives sometimes take on the above-mentioned responsibilities in addition to their regular full-time jobs. The experience gained by working as a Safety Representative may, however, count in one’s favour if one is aiming to work toward a full-time career in the occupational health and safety industry. While Safety Representatives are also required to undergo relevant training to assist them in carrying out their responsibilities, they do not necessarily need to study toward formal OHS qualifications. In many countries across Europe, the appointment of SHE Reps is legally mandated. The specific legislation governing SHE Reps can vary, such as the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). The number of required SHE Reps is typically determined based on factors like the size of the organization, the number of employees, and the level of risk in the workplace. SHE Reps are typically chosen through a process that involves consultation with employees or through an election within the workforce. Enhanced Safety Knowledge: Serving as a SHE Rep provides an opportunity to develop a deep understanding of occupational health and safety practices, regulations, and risk management. This knowledge can be valuable for personal growth and professional development. Leadership and Advocacy Skills: As a SHE Rep, you gain experience in representing and advocating for employee safety and well-being. These skills can be transferable and beneficial in various roles, particularly those involving safety, compliance, or employee engagement. Improved Employability: Having experience or qualifications as a SHE Rep can enhance your employability, especially in industries where occupational health and safety is of high importance. It demonstrates your commitment to workplace safety and your ability to contribute to a safe work environment. Career Growth Opportunities: Being involved in health and safety initiatives can provide opportunities for career advancement within the field of occupational health and safety, such as progressing to roles like Safety Officer, Safety Manager, or Health and Safety Consultant.
How do you improve your memory? There are many courses on “How to improve memory”, and it focuses mainly on techniques and methods. Some would include information on why it is important to be aware of how information is collected and processed. The information processing theory explains how information is collected, recorded, stored, and retrieved in the human brain. The behaviour and motivation are affected through this, and in turn, influences society. What makes this course different? We define the information processing theory, and origins, its elements, based on current literature. We discuss existing models that expound on the theory, its limitations, and some of its organizational benefits. After completing this course, you should have an idea of how people process information, its implications, and why applying its approaches comes as a valuable psychology field of expertise. But this course has more than that! This course is unique: Apart from the detail included above, this unique course includes valuable, yet seriously neglected aspects of Information Processing. These aspects range from Learning Styles of the individual that are widely misunderstood, to Mental Factors and State of Mind when learning, collecting or filtering information. It is very important to understand how these factors affect memory to allow you to benefit the most from any course on memory retention skills. We will also take a brief look at Information Processing Barriers vs Information Processing Disabilities. Another important factor to consider is understanding how and why people retain certain information and reject other. This is the Basics of Human Mental Survival. And one of the most important, yet mostly overlooked, is the one factor that affects everyone at regular intervals and this one factor generally has disastrous effects on collecting and processing information, and memory, but this one you will meet on course. Understand factors that influence how you, and anybody else, collect and process information. Not only this, but you will understand people better and have more compassion for why they react the way they do or why they process the information or instructions you give differently than you. This is definitely a Must-Do Course for the individual as well as the Counsellor, Therapist, Life Coach, Psychologist, CEO, Business Owner, Manager, and HR involved in Employee Training. Understand HOW your clients collect information and what blocks it. If your clients can understand their unique learning methods, and what Mental Factors restrain Information Collection and Retention, YOU will get Mind-Blowing Results. I am an Adult Education Specialist for the last 25 years, and have combined the studies I conducted on learning and memory, from a wide range of ethnic groups, with my skills and expertise as a professional Counsellor, Life Coach, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Practitioner, together with my studies in Theology, Psychology and Forensic Psychology to bring you a content-rich, life-changing course. What you will learn: At the end of this course, you will understand and be able to use: How information is collected and processed Stages of Memory Conventional Learning Styles vs Learning Methods Information Processing Barriers vs Information Processing Disabilities Processing Filters and Mental blockages How Basic Mental Survival influences Collecting of Information and Memory Retention The Hidden Factor that Influences It All. The least considered, yet one of the most important. Methods to Expand Memory Retention Expand your knowledge. Expand your memory. Expand your mind. Get on board! Dr. Francois Meyer
