    1. 1. Team Awareness & Team Resilience the evidence- base This presentation describes background on Team Awareness and Team Resilience Joel B. Bennett, Phd www.organizationalwellness.com

    3. 3. • Team Awareness developed--NIH Grant (8-hour program) • Identified as Evidence-Based (Model) Program by DHHS (2002) • Has reached estimated 30,000 workers in diverse settings • Adapted for corporate, military, tribal settings, union settings, municipalities, government, ex-offenders, young restaurant workers, NECA-IBEW, youth corps, others • National Guard flagship program • Team Resilience in NREPP (2012) • Both in Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness 1994-2002 (TCU) Team Awareness 2002-2005 www.nrepp.samhsa.gov 3 Team Resilience
    4. 4. Why Team Awareness 1. Peer support: group cohesion, positive communication are among the strongest workplace-based predictors of employee health and wellbeing 2. Peers know: about behavior concerns in their coworkers before others and may be in a position to help 3. Local work climate is a significant contributor to employee risk and deviance (e.g., unhealthy dietary norms, drinking climate, bullying climate) 4. Coworkers influence health behaviors: role-modeling, behavioral contagion, social norms, intra-network diffusion 5. The group is THE nexus for Total Worker Health processes (The We in Wellness)

Results of Clinical Trials • Team Awareness (evidence-based workplace program); clinical studies found improvements – Help-seeking – EAP utilization – Supervisor Responsiveness – Stress levels – Work Climate – Policy/benefits knowledge • While also reducing problem drinking and productivity problems

    9. 9. Important to know “Team Awareness was originally designed as a prevention intervention for the workplace culture; that is, to promote a culture of health and healthy choices among workplace social groups. It was not designed as a set of separate tools that participants could use in different ways for different purposes. The overall goals are holistic—bring workers together to experience the social aspects of the program and learn skills (for well-being, stress management, communication, peer referral) in the context of the social group.” Bennett J.(2013).

    13. 13. How OWLS consults on RTP adaptations • Intervention design occurs in the context of understanding local organizational dynamics and temporal phases of program uptake • Four factors comprise dynamics and uptake – Fidelity to intervention: adherence to original protocols and training-of-trainers, monitoring program drift, training on fidelity – Adaptation/innovation: customization and tweaking to fit with local culture, policy, change – Capacity building: stakeholder buy-in, social marketing, pre-post engagement strategies – Intervention delivery: when, where, what, how, who-technical aspects of intervention Learn More: http://organizationalwellness.com/consulting/
