Improving individual psychological wellbeing at work
Dealing with increasing workloads, trying to use and develop your skills, balancing home and work - all common features of our working life that can have a significant impact on our psychological wellbeing, i.e. on how satisfied/stressed we feel at work. This course helps delegates understand how work can impact on psychological health and what they individually can do to improve this. It will focus on two main themes:
- positive psychological wellbeing at work, including building resilience;
- stress, pressure and psychological illhealth, including managing stress and excessive pressure
Successful improvement of individual psychological wellbeing in training will depend on the delegates:
- developing real insight and self-awareness
- being able to explore and reach this insight in a supportive learning environment
- taking time to practise these skills, reflect and gradually improve
The course therefore addresses the need for both knowledge and practical application, helping delegates understand the theory as well as practise the techniques. Delegates will also be given a full supporting resource pack.
By the end of the day, individual delegates will be able to:
- identify how they react to stress and pressure
- understand common resilience building and stress management techniques
- identify simple actions/ changes they will take to promote their wellbeing at work
This course is delivered by a chartered psychologist from the Keil Centre, Edinburgh
Suitable for up to 15 delegates.
