  • Suicide prevention: when confronted with signs in a conversation, how can I further question the issues and offer support as a confidant?

  • Role of trustee in a legal framework: responsibilities of the trustee and the other parties within the welfare law

These themes are not reworked annually, but every 3 years so you have the opportunity to take multiple themes.

During this supervision/intervision, the following points are covered:
