Returning Confidently

Thu 16 Sep 2021


Some of us have been working at home since last March, others have been working full-time on-site since then with very reduced numbers of colleagues around, others have been doing a bit of both and some have been on furlough or flexi-furlough. At this point, national restrictions are easing and more changes to our ways of working lie ahead. How are you feeling about returning to the workplace? How are you feeling about other people returning?

Join this session to understand the scientific perspective about why these changes might be stressful, and identify the main sources of stress for you. Take some time to plan how you can manage these feelings and learn some techniques to help cope with the tough moments.

The session is followed by a three day Nudge Course. This is one technique per day to help attendees convert proven techniques into useful habits. Also, for 48 hours following the session, participants will have the opportunity to contact Joy, a mental health nurse with over 40 years’ experience to help signpost them onto a recognised next step. Further details will be provided on the day.
