Tackling work and life pressures with self care, CBT and mindfulness

This workshop will focus on building and strengthening your own wellbeing and resilience, both personally and professionally.

Date: 29 March 2019

Location: Glasgow

Time: 9:30AM - 1:00PM

Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of GlasgowIn association with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Glasgow (RCPSG), this half-day, CPD-accredited practical workshop will focus on building and strengthening your own wellbeing and resilience, both personally and professionally. 

Certain life and work pressures can test your emotional resilience, and can often compromise your general wellbeing. Taking steps to build on your own personal skills and practises of self care can really help, and approaches such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness/compassion are ideally suited to this.  

During this course you will: 

  • Build on your understanding of why we feel the way we do and how outside life events impact on our feelings and wellbeing 
  • Learn cognitive behaviour and mindful/compassion approaches for your own self help  
  • Learn how to build and promote these approaches within your personal and working life 

Participation in this workshop aims to be interactive, engaging and fun, providing insights, tools and techniques that can help make a difference to how you respond to everyday life and work experiences.
