So Much Good in What We Do

Small Recognitions and Why They Matter

You want to be seen

To date, over 2,000 advocates have attended RAFT workshops.

By leadership, colleagues, and clients at work. By parents, partners, children, and friends. Whether something is big or small, you want to be seen and trusted by the important people in your life.  

Unfortunately, most people aren’t great at remembering to acknowledge others. People think they are making others feel seen, but in reality, so many of us feel invisible to the people who are most important in our lives. 

The good news is, RAFT friend Heather Slutzky, is leading a 2-hour free virtual workshop that will teach the tools you, and the important people in your life, need to make recognition an intentional practice, so that everyone can feel clearly seen by others. 

What will you learn?

Healthy teams, connected families, and positive friendships are all anchored in noticing and commenting on the ways each individual shows up in that relationship.  

Safety oriented cultures in healthcare use a practice called 5 to 1, and this workshop will share the mechanics, benefits, and most importantly the implementation of this practice in any relationship.  

By the end of this workshop you will: 

  • See the strengths you already have 
  • Understand the concepts and useful boundaries behind 5 to 1 feedback 
  • Develop ideas to expand what, and how, you acknowledge your leaders, colleagues, family, and friends
  • Find team building muscles you can strengthen 
  • Identify ways you may be offering unintentional negative reinforcement 

Who is this workshop for?

The tools you learn in this workshop will make a big difference in your team dynamics and work culture. AND 5 to 1 feedback can support you in creating positive relationships with all of the important people in your life.  

Please, invite other sexual and domestic violence colleagues you may have, and invite your friends and family members, so everyone in your life can start seeing each other more clearly. 

How do I know if this workshop is for me?

Whether applying the tools from this workshop to your work or family life (or both) this workshop is for you if you: 

  • Feel you aren’t being shown the appreciation you deserve  
  • You want to be recognized for the contributions you are making 
  • Are wondering what else you can do to make colleagues, family, and friends feel recognized. 
  • Are looking for new ways to empower others and create a new culture of sharing positive feedback 

"Great interaction with the audience given the virtual format.  Not just endless presenting and facts, there was great conversation."

(TVSA Attendee) 

"I think what stood out to me most is the mix of calming strength and joyful support you offer for my fellow caregivers and those impacted by the medical system."

About RAFT – Resilience for Advocates through Foundational Training 

We improve the level of care for sexual and domestic violence survivors by supporting advocates in building resilience to compassion fatigue and burnout. Creating awareness of domestic and sexual violence is pivotal to ending it. Supporting survivors in rebuilding their lives, including men and boys in the conversation, and working with abusers are all necessary pieces of the puzzle. But the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of the advocate supporting the survivor must also be addressed and is crucial to the movement to end sexual and domestic violence for all.
