Thinking Outside the Box

What We Do

I have been told that I don’t just think outside of the box;
I am not in the same room with the box.

The Whyse Approach for Health Services

This workshop is currently being developed.

Like the original Whyse Approach, this workshop will focus on understanding mental health and trauma issues, and providing the supports not only for your patients/clients, but your colleagues and yourself as well. It will be useful for anyone working in any of the Health Services in any capacity. From the MOA’s who have initial contact with the patients/clients to the Health Professionals providing the services, the workshop will be valuable for everyone. We can also personalize the content to your specific area of specialty. Contact us for more information.
