This webinar looks at the proposed solutions, how they go wrong, and how we as practitioners can keep pushing the need for intervention over incentive. 

This webinar addresses the frustrations that many practitioners feel when the problems of a system are pushed onto the individual.  While of course a “pincer movement” can be very effective, and certainly when the individual feels mentally and emotionally “fit” enough they are an excellent advocate for change, it is important that we remain aware that where the culture is to “push everything onto the psychologist and then say ‘it’s ok, we’re dealing with it’ ” we may well be fighting a losing battle. 

This webinar explores the solutions that are offered in greater depth and continually asks the question – what more can we all do? 

Target Audience 

This webinar is aimed at people working within organisations, however elements may be helpful to anyone experiencing burnout within their own organisation, or seeing the symptoms in themselves or others. 

Learning outcomes

By the end of this two-hour webinar, participants will:  

  • Explore the issues and solutions – and how incentive may be being mistaken for intervention 

  • Deep dive into some of the current solutions eg: Communities of coping (friendships at work/having a “work spouse”), and the “vulnerable leader” – how leaders are encouraged to speak more about their failings (but also need to ROLE MODEL healthy practice…the latter is less often practiced) 

  • Exploration of the ways to find the best interventions for your organisation (treating organisations as individuals as much as we do individuals as such!) – while addressing the potential mis-match between the vision of workplace wellbeing from the top, and the practice/experience on the floor
