Group Facilitator – Shepparton and Warrnambool
Road Trauma Support Services Victoria is looking for experienced group facilitators in the Shepparton and Warrnambool areas who can work with people who have traffic-related offences or at risk of and where participants are diverse in their demographics and offending behaviour.
As the work is casual and mostly after hours, this can be done on top of current work.
This role will also deliver programs to a range of community-based groups in road safety prevention.
These positions require people to have had experience working in groups. As these programs are brief interventions, group facilitators need to create a safe space quickly to allow participants to openly share their driving behaviour and work on ways to prevent risky driving.
The road trauma/safety programs aim to bring about attitude and behavioural change and reduce risky driving recidivism. They are based on restorative justice principles and employ a cognitive behavioural approach using both volunteer speakers with personal experiences of trauma and presenters from the emergency services. The program aims are to:
- Confront and evaluate participant belief systems regarding traffic-related offending
- Bring about a shift from blame to choose
- Assist participants in identifying and managing precursors to offending
- Provide peer discussion and problem-solving
- Provide reality-based learning using volunteer/paramedic presentation
Applicants must address the key accountabilities, meet the capabilities framework, have a recent CV and have sent their application to Chris Harrison at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have further questions, please call Chris Harrison on 03 8877 6900. Training will be provided at a date to be determined.
