Managing Pressure: workshops for Managers

‘Managers Managing Pressure’ is the term used to describe a workshop designed to support management grades in developing a deeper knowledge and understanding of the causes of stress and the enhancement of psychological wellbeing in the workplace. The workshops, which are either one-day or half-day events, provide delegates with evidence-based but practical support, guidance, tools and techniques for the effective management of psychological wellbeing in themselves and others.  Workshops are typically delivered at a venue close to the delegates’ normal place of work. The learning is achieved through a combination of media, including theory, discussion, reflection, activity and DVD.

Who is it for?

The workshop is for anyone whose job role involves the management, direction and support of a team. The learning emphasises a comprehensive approach that addresses prevention as well as management and treatment.
