New Paradigms of Non Normal and Training to Failure: Training for Safety
Presented by Jeff Jackson

The premise of this work: it is faulty logic to believe that training field staff for ‘normal’ operations will somehow prepare them to deal with ‘non normal’ events when they (inevitably) occur. Non normal would be considered anything beyond expected events or outcomes – a large catch all category that captures undesirable, unplanned or unexpected events. In particular, the focus will be on time-sensitive, safety critical behaviours. The premise of this work extends that if we want certain safety behaviours, then we need to show people the boundaries around such behaviours, and the repercussions of undesirable safety behaviours. There is theoretical and empirical evidence for this. This work is based on the presenter’s PhD research and application of industrial safety theory and findings.

If We Were Brave: Managing Risk in Social Justice Training
Presented by Anna Czarnik-Neimeyer

It’s high-stakes: These days, effective social justice training is urgent. We’re an education coalition working to change/train minds & hearts towards justice, and need all the tools we can get. We’ll discuss Arao & Clemens’ foundational 2013 piece, “From Safe Space to Brave Spaces: A New Way to Frame Dialogue Around Diversity and Social Justice” and explore interdisciplinary theories supporting brave space. We’ll dig into practical activities, metaphors, comics, and videos to take home for immediate facilitation use. Great for beginner through advanced, and those interested in being more intentional & just facilitators in any setting: in the field, classroom, or boardroom.
