Developing Emotional Resilience in Social Care for Managers Workshop – 5 December 2024

Thursday 5th December 2024 – 9.45am-12.30pm (online via Zoom)

Trainer: Bev Nicholson, Transformation Consultant and Coach 

Resilience is the ability to cope under pressure and recover from difficulties. It’s a subject that our members have told us they are increasingly concerned about during this difficult time.

Adult social care staff need to be resilient, to help them to cope better under pressure and continue to deliver high quality care and support.

This workshop will help social care managers to support their frontline staff to understand resilience, manage stress, recognise their limits and develop self-care action plans.

The focus of the workshop is resilience; looking at triggers, coping mechanisms and opportunities to support a self-care mindset, balanced against the challenges of working in an environment focussed on the care of others.

Support materials are provided for each participant, together with training about how managers can cascade their learning to others within their organisation.

Wellbeing and Resilience Questionnaire

Attendees are emailed a link to a free Resilience test that they can complete prior to the workshop.   Upon completion they will receive their own report instantly.  The link also offers  the chance to undertake other tests, which are also free.  The analysis of the questionnaire will be useful for each participant identifying their stress factors and to support their personal development.

The trainer (Bev) believes that the responses lead into a bigger dataset that provides aggregated population stats for research, similar to the Unconscious Bias test.

There is no requirement to bring the results along to the Workshop, unless of course attendees wish to do so.
