The Skills Training in Affective Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR) program is a ground-breaking initiative aimed at improving emotional regulation, interpersonal communication skills and relationship skills for people who are at risk of service related stress or have been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress.

It is a skills-based intervention which provides a practical and accessible way to address service related stress and trauma which supports resilience, return to work if injured and management to improve quality of life. This project also aims to develop an accredited peer counselling and support workforce model – training servicemen and women to become peer counsellors for their fellow work mates.

Held over 12 weeks participants learn how to:

  • Become more aware and comfortable with their emotions
  • Develop positive, healthy coping skills for distressing feelings
  • Identify unhealthy relationship patterns
  • Build skills to improve relationships
  • Build resilience and confidence

Led by Dr Jon Lane, Psychiatrist, ADF Reservist and Afghanistan veteran, sessions run for 90 minutes and are held at The Road Home’s Australian Centre of Excellence for Post-Traumatic Stress, co-located at the Jamie Larcombe Centre in Glenside SA.
