Looking to organise some training that can bring your team together?
Limited by a low training budget for psychology?
This workshop will give your team of mental health professionals a safe place to reflect together. Guided by an approach grounded in Contextual Behavioural Science (CBS) and process-based CBT, you’ll get to explore useful ways of enhancing your professional successes and personal well-being.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) has a history of self-practice and self-reflection, which encourages the therapist to live the model. You’ll be taught several useful tools that will show you how to identify your strengths and learn from common mistakes.
You’ll get to identify:
- Areas you typically get stuck
- Unhelpful tendencies you adopt in those situations
- What not to focus on when trying to improve your practice
- Your Strengths and relative weaknesses in the Cycle of Caring
- An experiential method for building perspective-taking and self-compassion
- The purposes that matter to you most in both your professional and personal lives
The Demanding Context of a being a Professional Helper
When working in a helping role, it is easy to lose connection with your own needs. This puts you at increased risk of stress, compassion fatigue, vicarious traumatisation and burnout. Many causes of stress are environmental and outside of your direct control. Whilst it is important to address organisational sources of stress, this workshop will focus primarily on ways you can directly improve you individual psychological well-being.

What not to expect
This workshop will not point out obvious self-care strategies. We know that you know what makes you feel better.
Instead of seeing work-life and personal-life as two completely distinct areas of your life, you’ll discover a thread between the two. Rather than discussing how to manage a work-life balance, you’ll identify in detail what you care about most deeply and how to use this as a focus in your clinical practice.
You will not be asked to participate in pointless team-building exercises. Each section of the day has a carefully chosen purpose. And that purpose is to help you learn something new and useful that you can use with your clients, together with your peers and for yourself.
If you’re looking for a stimulating training workshop that gives your team a chance to develop routine reflective practices, better self-care and stronger professional relationships, then get in touch.
