LEARNING TO LIVE WITH AMBIGUITY & UNCERTAINTY

TIME:   2 hour online workshop  

AUDIENCE: This offer has been been commissioned to directly support access for senior leaders across the North West (including but not exclusive to NHS Organisation Directors, Executive and Governing body Leads, Primary Care Network senior leadership teams and those working across system level roles) if you would like to discuss access further please contact us at nwla.hwb@nhs.net

DESCRIPTION: Uncertainty is all around us.  We crave information about the future, we crave security, we want to feel safe and have a sense of control over our lives.  The current situation means this is more difficult for many, leading to heightened anxiety, stress and powerlessness.  It's emotionally draining!  So how can we best cope when everything feels so out of control?

OUTCOMES: This session explores strategies to help alleviate anxieties and face the unknown with more confidence. 

During the session you will:

  • Learn how to focus on controlling those things that are under your control
  • Learn to better tolerate, even embrace, the inevitable uncertainty of life
  • Understand the difference between resisting and acceptance
  • Identify your healthy comforts
  • Develop a realistic perspective
  • Agree on personal action points

BUILDING OURSELVES BACK UP

TIME: 2 hour online workshop

AUDIENCE: This offer has been commissioned to directly support access for senior leaders across the North West (including but not exclusive to NHS Organisation Directors, Executive and Governing body Leads, Primary Care Network senior leadership teams and those working across system level roles) if you would like to discuss access further please contact us at nwla.hwb@nhs.net

DESCRIPTION: We are living through times that most of us could never have imagined.  Many of us are not in the best emotional shape facing increasing demands on our time, resources, and energy.  It's not surprising we may feel exhausted and on edge.  Emotions matter for health and wellbeing - how we feel influences our bodies, including physical and mental health.  Stress and pressure are associated with increased levels of cortisol linked to depression, cardio vascular issues and weight gain.  Learning to regulate unpleasant emotions and experience more positive emotions have been shown to have significant health benefits including greater resilience.

OUTCOMES:

During the session you will:

  • Gain knowledge about Barbara Fredrickson's research in this area
  • Explore the links between psychological wellbeing and physical wellbeing, productivity, engagement and resilience
  • Undertake an emotional audit
  • Learn how to maximise your positive emotions
  • Apply tools and techniques to boost your emotional wellbeing
