➡️ Online event: Looking After Yourself Webinar: extra date added!

Due to popular demand, NACCOM is running an additional Looking After Yourself Webinar

When – Thursday 14th May

Time – 3:30 to 5:00pm

The webinar will offer members (staff and key volunteers) affected by the COVID-19 crisis, the opportunity to take part in a 1.5 hour psychosocial support workshop.

The workshop will be facilitated by Dr Mirjam Klann Thullesen, a Psychologist and Psychotherapist, with specialist knowledge of working in the refugee field.

Over the past 15 years Mirjam has worked with organisations such as Freedom from Torture, the Poppy Project and the British Refugee Council. Mirjam has particular expertise in mentoring other professionals working with complex client groups. The workshop will be interactive, allowing participants to discuss and share how they are affected by the change in their work situation, including how they are managing stress and pressure. In the workshop, emphasis will be placed on discussing creative and helpful ways staff are managing self-isolation and the pressures of working from home. We will discuss self-care and boundary setting, as a way of creating division between home life and work.

There are only 8 places for the workshop on Thursday 14th May. But if there is high demand we will look to put on a further date.

To register, please email Paul Catterall, Network Development Worker, to reserve your place, stating your name, your organisation, your job title, your contact number and what you hope to gain from the session. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please try to do this by 5pm on Friday 8th May as places are limited.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.
