Supporting healthcare professionals through challenging times

Self Care & Managing Stress

14.10.21 - 28.10.21
Live online sessions for a limited number of participants.

Develop practical, positive techniques to manage everyday stress. Part of Performing Medicine’s Open Programme.


Over three 2-hour modules, this course explores positive ways to revitalise life at work, build resilience and begin to create a more supportive working environment where your own self-care is prioritised.

Drawing on our work with healthcare professionals and using the Circle of Care model, participants will explore a range of exercises to look after themselves and each other, including ways to cope well with the physical demands of their work, 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.

Live online sessions for a limited number of participants. Participants should attend all three sessions as they build on from each other.
