Explore positive ways to revitalise life at work, build resilience and begin to create a more supportive working environment.

This one-day course explores positive ways to revitalise life at work, build resilience and begin to create a more supportive working environment where self-care is prioritised. Drawing on the innovative Circle of Care model, participants will explore a range of exercises to look after themselves and each other, helping them to cope well with the physical demands of working in healthcare, including relaxation techniques to help prepare for, respond to, and wind down from busy and stressful schedules. Participants will learn how to restore energy, identify and release tension and therefore allow their bodies to perform at their best, building stamina and resilience to cope with long hours. Focusing on non-verbal communication, participants’ will build physical awareness, and an understanding of the impact of their own physicality on that of their patients, including the ways that they move and touch.
