OSC Mobile Training Teams Mark Program Milestones

The Navy’s Operational Stress Control (OSC) Program surpassed a milestone Aug. 10 with completion of the 100th presentation of the Navy Operational Stress Control Leader Course (NAVOSC-LEAD) at NTC Great Lakes, Il. The courses were also provided OCONUS by the OSC Mobile Training Team East during their trips to Guantanamo Bay; Rota, Spain; and Bahrain.

The MTTs deliver both the Navy OSC Leader Course and the Front Line Supervisors Training (FLST) to enhance leaders’ ability to help Sailors and their families better navigate the stresses of Navy life.  The focus on prevention and positive action is designed to help leaders intervene to help shipmates and their families build and maintain wellness.

Recently, two afloat commands took advantage of the OSC Mobile Training Teams’ delivery of two courses that provide the practical tools and information necessary to help their Sailors prepare for the challenges of Navy Life.

In April, the East coast Team delivered the training to its first aircraft carrier, the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) to Sailors in preparation for their workup cycle and the ship’s return to the  Fleet.  See  Truman Sailors Receive Operational Stress Control Training – Navy.mil .  In June, the West Coast team delivered  training for six days, while underway, aboard the USS Stennis (CVN 74).

The MTTs deliver both the Navy Operational Stress Control Leader course and Front Line Supervisor Training to help build the long-term health of Sailors. See Stennis Sailors manage operational stress

OSC Mobile Training Teams Deliver Training Directly to Commands

The Operational Stress Control (OSC) Mobile Training Teams (MTT) are currently conducting in-person training both ashore and at sea.  The two teams, one based on the east coast and the other on the west coast, are positioned to respond quickly to training requests from commands on how Sailors can best navigate the stresses of Navy life.  NAVADMIN 150-12 outlines the details for requesting this training.

The Mobile Training Teams offer two courses: The Navy OSC Leader Course and Front Line Supervisor Training (FLST).  “We wanted to expand the availability of our OSC skills training and the MTTs are the most cost-effective method. This brings the training to the command,” said Capt. Kurt Scott, Behavioral Health Programs Director, Bureau of Naval Personnel. “The most important part of these courses is the frank discussion among attendees. When members of a command talk about what they see as stress-related issues and how course tools could be applied in their commands, OSC becomes more than a concept – it becomes a way of doing day-to-day business.”

The OSC Leader course is an interactive, professionally-facilitated, skills-based course. Leaders learn how to identify stress, build resilience and mitigate stress before it becomes a stress injury or illness. During the course, the command leadership will share their real-world experiences and how they handled stress.

The Front Line Supervisor Training course provides in-depth training for deckplate supervisors to enhance their ability to recognize and effectively intervene with Sailors suffering from emotional distress caused by life’s challenges. The course emphasizes supervisory and helping skills.

To schedule training at no cost to your command contact the OSC MTT lead trainers today at:

MTT West – Mr. Ernest Jackson (619) 556-7215 or via email at ernest.s.jackson.ctr(AT)navy.mil

MTT East – Mr. Daniel Danner at (757) 445-7353 ext 1035 or via email at daniel.danner.ctr(AT)navy.mil

Navy Develops Operational Stress Control Mobile Training Teams

Operational Stress Control Mobile Training Team Joins the Fleet

The Operational Stress Control (OSC) program has expanded its outreach efforts with a Mobile Training Team (MTT). The OSC MTT is split between east and west coasts and will be offering the OSC Leader Course and Front Line Supervisor Training to both local and world-wide commands. Read more information on the OSC MTT as highlighted in this recent Navy NewsStand story. To schedule training at your command contact: West Coast – Scotty Jackson at (619) 556-7215 or East Coast – Daniel Danner at (757) 445-7353, extension 1035.

Operational Stress Control Mobile Training Team Joins the Fleet

11/2/2011
From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs
MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) — The six members of the new Operational Stress Control (OSC) Mobile Training Team (MTT) have completed three weeks of orientation and intensive training here and will report to their home bases in Norfolk and San Diego, officials said Nov. 2.

The two three-person teams are part of the latest effort to expand delivery of OSC training to the fleet and team members will teach the OSC Leader Course and the Front Line Supervisor Training (FLST) courses over the next year to commands worldwide.

“We’ve heard from both Navy leadership and the fleet that we need to continually expand OSC’s outreach,” said Capt. Lori Laraway, OSC program coordinator. “We’ve heard that our messages about the importance of leaders in identifying and preventing stress injuries are on target, but we want to expand the program’s effectiveness.

“We also know from focus groups, polls and course feedback that Sailors prefer face-to-face training so we designed these new teams to bring the best new curriculum to Sailors at their commands.”

Delivering the OSC message of the role of leadership in creating a command environment that rewards help-seeking behaviors should be relatively easy for the new trainers. Collectively the six members have more than 120 years of Navy service and 70 years of exemplary training experience.

According to the MTT program leader, Ernest “Scotty” Jackson, “Every member of this team has a deep understanding of the Navy and its unique challenges. We believe that their experience coupled with their exceptional training skills will be invaluable to building understanding of the role of Navy leaders in addressing operational stress and building resilience.”

Among the six trainers, three qualified as Navy master training specialists; one was named “Navy Instructor of the Year, one is a USMC “Moments of Excellence Award” winner, while another was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal for course proctoring. 
Jackson added that the team’s perspectives on Navy lifestyle are enhanced by the new instructors’ expansive and collective experience. Members of the training team served in a variety of positions including hospital corpsman, career counselor, Navy civilian, in the enlisted and officer corps, in line operations, and in the surface, air, and Navy Special Warfare communities.

Key to the Navy OSC Leader training is the face-to-face interaction among attendees and the panel discussion with command leadership. To orchestrate open and honest dialogue, trainers must gain the trust of attendees.

“We know about the sacrifices and challenges of military service and the important role leaders play,” Jackson said. “We are excited about bringing them the tools and techniques they need to be effective.”

OSC Leader Training – Getting back to “Taking Care of Sailors”

If having leadership in one room, at one time, candidly discussing real stress issues with your peers appeals to you, then register for the Navy OSC Leader Course on April 25, 2011, in San Diego, CA.

The 1-day course encourages audience discussion of real-life scenarios you and your Sailors face every day.   Join other Navy Officers and Chief Petty Officers in learning how to effectively help Sailors navigate stress.  While the course aims to help promote long-term health, wellness and well being of our Sailors, families and commands, past students put its results in more practical terms.

One department head said the course was, “Totally necessary; very relevant.”  A Command Master Chief commented, “Frankly, I feel it brought to the surface some things we may have a little knowledge of, but refocused us on what it is all about: Taking care of Sailors.”
