Fostering a Psychologically Safe Clinical Learning Environment
Psychological safety in the learning environment is a shared belief that the educator-learner relationship is safe for interpersonal risk-taking which creates a sense of confidence that the educator will not embarrass, reject, or punish the learner due to mutual respect and trust. The purpose of this module is to help educators (the leaders of learning teams) to foster psychologically safe environments for all SMHS learners.
This course is for all educators training SMHS students in the clinical learning environment.
By the end of this module, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the importance and contributions of psychological safety in the clinical learning environment.
- Identify actions you can take to enhance psychological safety on your learning teams.
