Free webinar for health & care staff: Looking after your wellbeing this winter
Feeling anxious or overwhelmed about winter pressures this year? Or simply want to be prepared to protect your wellbeing, and your team’s? Watch our webinar!
This is KeepingWell NCL’s fifth wellbeing webinar, free for all staff across North Central London ICS. This interactive session provided a space for reflection and guidance for health & care staff as they prepare for the specific challenges of this unique winter period.
Drawing on their experience working on physical and mental health wards, Occupational Therapist Emily Kenworthy and Lead Nurse Esther Sofela help staff to reflect in advance on the challenges we may face this year, and how we manage our approach and emotional response to these demands. Through supported discussion, Emily and Esther help attendees consider how they can practice self-compassion in this often tricky time, build coping strategies and habits in advance, and provide tips for day-to-day self- and team-care and further resources for support.
