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

1 hour webinar

Dates:

12th November (11am – 12 noon)

15th December (3pm – 4pm)

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: Managing Stress and Burnout

Dates:

26th November  (11am – 12 noon)

17th December  (11am – 12 noon)

At different times during the course of our careers we will likely feel fatigued, overwhelmed and as if we are struggling to meet the demands of work. This is understandable given the intense pace and complex nature of health and social care work. If these feelings persist for long periods of time it may lead to burnout. Burnout is a state of emotional, physical, and mental exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress.

The factors that give rise to the experience of burnout are often complex, including organizational and individual factors. This session will focus on what you can do as an individual to help identify early signs and put strategies in place to help manage the emotional demands of work and reduce the chance of burnout.

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.”
