1 hour – $59 per person (free for Subscribers)

Effective working with risk requires high-quality, collaborative decision making. In this short course we outline the common ways in which decision-making in mental health work is derailed by biases of various kinds. We then outline a practical method for enhancing the quality of your decision-making

You will learn:

  • Why decision-making is central to working with risk
  • How ‘Cognitive Traps’ can lead to poor decisions
  • Why ‘what you see’ is NOT ‘all there is’
  • The danger of seeking confirmation
  • Biases that affect teams: Groupthink and Cognitive Dissonance
  • A simple but powerful 5-Step framework for improving your decision-making
