Event Details

Are you working in a context where there aren't enough resources or time to meet demand? Is it often hard to know what to do or which situation to prioritise? Are you just about surviving and fearful you might burn out? Are you consulting to organisations where this is reality?

This workshop will explore the impact on our well-being and functioning of working in organisations under sustained pressure. We’ll apply the Systems-Centered idea of ‘survival roles’ – the default places we all go to under stress – to learn more about our reactions and behaviours under pressure and discover alternative options.

Using the method of Functional Subgrouping, we’ll practise strategies to regain self-regulation, reduce reactivity and reclaim our creativity and energy at work.

When: June 17 and 18, 9.30 - 16.30

By 3rd April:
Community groups, public and third sector organisations – £300; SCTRI members – £400; Others – £475
From 4th April:
Community groups, public and third sector organisations – £350; SCTRI members – £450; Others – £525
