organisational policies, procedures and protocols.

Code of ethics refers to a professional ethical code established by a relevant
professional or regulatory body and setting out a definitive, systematic statement on
ethical practice intended to guide the work of all members of the profession from
beginning practitioners to advanced and expert practitioners.
Organisational protocols are the guidelines, rules and regulations of an organisation
including its legal requirements, policies, procedures, templates and processes.
Practice supervision is a contracted relationship with a skilled peer who provides a
safe context to reflect on and review aspects of, or episodes in, a professional’s
practice. It involves a worker meeting with an independent person who has
advanced experience, knowledge and practice skills, including skills in supervisory
practice. Practice supervision happens either inside or outside the workplace in a
confidential setting.
Risk is the chance of injury, damage, loss or hazard to a person or organisation.
Risk can be to an individual’s identity or physical, emotional or cultural well-being or
to an organisation’s reputation, viability, or resource base.
Self care is decisions and actions an individual takes to improve his or her health and
well-being or to prevent problems from arising in the first place.
Stress minimisation includes any activity used to reduce or alleviate stress. Tools
used for this purpose include relaxation techniques, massage, exercise, meditation,
debriefing, supervision, time and workload management, reflective practice and
journaling.
Youth/young people are people between the ages of 12 and 24.
