Resource description:

We have created a suite of mini-courses aimed at promoting mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. Drawing on expertise from within the Hub, each Mini Course delivers rich and in-depth learning experiences, with a clear, practical focus on the most pressing challenges and development needs facing organisations today.

Each of the courses run continuously, so you can sign up at any time.

They each offer five hours of self-directed learning which you can undertake at a time and pace that suits you. There are no specific requirements or assessments for any of the courses: they are open to all.


You will have access to the course and its materials for a total of four weeks. Access begins the day after you’ve registered, when you will receive login details by email.

Working Towards Wellbeing: Trauma, Self-Care and Caring for Others provides an accessible introduction to trauma in the context of the workplace. You’ll learn how and why traumatic responses are generated in the brain and body, and how different responses to trauma may look and feel, in order to promote greater understanding and foster a more supportive and protective working environment.

By the end of the course, you will be better equipped to notice when someone may be suffering from the impact of emotional or psychological trauma, and able to create a more ‘trauma-informed’ workplace, particularly in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Who is this course for? This course is ideal for anyone interested in the impact of trauma in the workplace, and in developing a trauma-informed workplace.

Course Lead and Contributors: Lydia Hartland-Rowe, Mary Robertson and Dr Jo Stubley
