Creating A Culture of Safety

1) Watch the video: “Building a psychologically safe workplace” (TED talk by Amy Edmonson).

GOAL: Develop awareness of psychological safety and its importance in teamwork.

In high-functioning teams, every member feels able to disclose errors, near-misses, or unsafe situations without fear of punishment or retaliation. Creating this culture of safety requires openness, trust, and leadership. As you watch this video, consider situations that you have witnessed in your clinical experiences. How would you characterize the psychological safety in these environments?
