Title:  Traumatic events at work- Effective ways to respond and to cope

1 hour webinar

Dates: 

Wednesday 25th May, 4pm 

Friday 15th July – 12.30pm  

Wednesday 14th September – 12-1pm

 

We might commonly think of traumatic events in terms of national disasters, major accidents and warfare but trauma exists in many forms. Events experienced in the line of health and social care (and associated) duties can often be experienced as traumatic. This can become especially heightened if we are under unusual or intensely stressful circumstances; even things we are used to dealing with can become traumatic in an uncommonly frightening, unpredicted or stressful situation.

This webinar will introduce a general concept of workplace trauma and some common situations that may lead to employees feeling traumatised. It will cover the uncomfortable and distressing symptoms that recently traumatised people may commonly experience after an event and provide evidence-based advice on self-care strategies to minimise the impact of these. The webinar will also focus attention on how we support each other, suggesting a number of helpful strategies managers, service leaders and colleagues can employ in the hours and days after a traumatic event has happened. Lastly the webinar includes advice on key areas of concern to identify early and seek help with and information about the tailored support the Healthier Together Support Network provides for individuals, teams and services.

Title: Connecting with nature for wellbeing

Dates:

Wednesday 13th July, 12-1pm

Wednesday 5th October, 12-pm

It has long been recognised that fresh air and exercise can help us feel better, never more so than over the last two years, with many people finding that getting outside has been an important coping mechanism for the stress of the pandemic. But did you know that our relationship with nature is one of the reasons that getting outside can feel so good?

Research has shown that connecting with nature is an important factor in reducing distress and supporting good mental health. In this webinar we will explore some of the reasons why nature is good for us, how we can use this knowledge to support our wellbeing, and how we can find ways to connect with nature even if we don’t get much time outside.

Winter Pressures

Wednesday 19th October at 12pm

For those of us working in health and care services, winter can pose significant challenges to our mental wellbeing. Increased workloads; rates of illness for us and our loved ones; covering for staff absences and the pressure everyone has been under during the Covid-19 pandemic are likely to make this year additionally stressful. We may also be concerned about further changes and challenges ahead and the ways we usually combat stress may be less available when the nights are longer and the weather colder.

With all of this in mind, this webinar led by two of our

Psychologists from the Healthier Together Support Network will focus on how we can boost our resilience to winter pressures, focusing on:

1) recognising potential winter challenges

2) identifying early warning signs of stress, low mood and worry

3) introducing some simple self-care and team-care ideas for managing winter stresses plus

4) where you can seek additional support, including the tailored packages of psychological support offered through the Support Network.

 

Facilitated meetings - leadership teams


Several teams across our hospitals have already worked through a structured discussion – giving team members space to reflect on the impact the past year has had on them – as well as think ahead about how we can look after ourselves. They’ve found it useful, so we want to offer similar sessions to all leadership teams across the Healthier Together partnership.

 We can adapt the session format to meet your needs. Typical outcomes include:

  • Opportunity to share current experiences and stresses
  • Think about your wellbeing at an individual and team/service level
  • Consider the psychological challenges that may face your service/team or workforce

“Excellent session that helped the team bond together emotionally at this difficult and stressful time. Thank you.”

“I was sceptical as to how helpful this session would be. I thought it might a box ticking exercise. I was really pleasantly surprised at how useful it was. The take home message that its ok not to be ok and that others are having similar struggles has made me have a different perspective on the workplace. Thank you.”
