Over the past three years, interest in psychological safety as a key ingredient of simulation-based education is growing. Establishing psych safety enables learning as it provides the psychological context to both the simulation and the debriefing. If you can’t make it to the Critical Importance of Psychological Safety workshop or want to prepare for the discussion, here are some excellent FOAM Sim resources:
- Amy Edmondson’s work “Psychological Safety and Learning Behavior in Work Teams” highlights the educational benefits of psych safety.
- Jenny Rudolph et al’s paper “Establishing a Safe Container for Learning in Simulation” has generated lively discussions and podcasts about psych safety.
- On Debrief2Learn, check out Adam Cheng’s interview with Jenny about steps to building a psychologically safe learning environment in your prebrief.
- On Simulcast, Jenny talks with Vic Brazil and Jesse Spurr about the promise and paradoxes of psych safety.
- On the Simulcast Journal Club, Ben Symon generated an interesting debate and dialogue about the processes, plus and possible down-sides of working to create psych safety. The discussion ended with a funny, irreverent and insightful commentary by Chris Nickson.
- When psych safety unravels, it often leads to upset participants, instructors, or strife between co-debriefings. How to identify and manage such upset with captured in an interesting empirical study by Jared Hendrickson and colleagues.
