Code: BH/22/0638 Mental Health and Debt: Spotlight on Compulsive Behaviours and Dependencies (Microsoft Teams)

This event will explore mental health and debt in relation to compulsive behaviours and dependencies.  

Our local colleagues from CGL, Breakeven, Sussex Partnership Foundation Trust and Brighton Housing Trust will share their knowledge about the specialist services they work for, specific compulsive behaviours and dependencies and linking this to money and mental health. The thread of understanding compulsive behaviours and dependencies through the lens of trauma will run throughout.

The programme will include spotlight sessions on:

·        a trauma-informed understanding of compulsive behaviours and addictions

·        drugs and alcohol                                                                                         

·        gambling                                                                                                                   

·        online gaming                                                                                                                

·        compulsive shopping

The aim is to increase our understanding of specific behaviours and dependencies, how they interact with money and mental health and where to refer people locally for support with these issues.

Code: BH/22/0993 Perfecting Potential - 2 sessions (Zoom)


Perfecting Potential


The Why

Perfecting is about making things free from faults or defects, making them as good as possible. In our working or private lives, if we can perfect ourselves by increasing our knowledge about how our minds work and how we can realise more of our potential, it will not only benefit us personally, but also the organisation and all those around us.

Working remotely, being isolated, hours in front of the screen and online meetings, lack of quality time with our colleagues and friends, discussions and meetings made more difficult because they lack the personal touch, lack of real human interaction.

These things have impacted all of us and in different ways. Each one of us is unique and our reactions will be different, but there are common feelings that many people share.

The Who

Senior leaders / managers
This course will help you to understand how and why different people react differently to challenges. It will reveal some vital knowledge about your communication and management / leadership style. You will learn how and why others may be affected in different ways and how to be more effective in your interactions with them.

Teams and team members
Often teams are not working to optimum performance or productivity. Team members need to understand what is happening to themselves and those around them – and particularly the different impact(s) they may have on different people (and vice versa).

Having a common way of thinking, a “common language”, a fuller understanding of what each team member brings and their value to the team is critical in making “the sum greater than the parts”.

The How
The approach is quite different. It starts with laying the foundations of how our minds work. Not in a technical or scientific way (although it is backed up with decades of evidence), but in a completely practical, pragmatic way. A way that will enable you immediately to do something about it – if you want to be more successful, develop more of your potential and refine your interactions with those around you.

It then gives you insight into your own communication and thinking style using the renowned CORE Matrix profiling instrument. It helps you identify your strengths and differences from those around you. It gives you the tools to understand how to make your communications and leadership / management style more effective, whether you are a leader or not. It will help you to establish rapport more easily and effectively with others, whether it’s for everyday work interactions, talking to stakeholders or customers, or your friends and family.

The Result
Get ahead of the curve! Start to realise more of your potential and the potential of the team, achieve more success and satisfaction – and, on the way, reduce stress and build your resilience!

Code: BH/22/0567 Building Your Resilience (Microsoft Teams) (EVENT FULL)

Coronavirus has changed the way almost all of us work now. It has also affected all aspects of our lives. Whether you are working from home, needing to continue your usual work in the community with social distancing safety measures, or unable to work right now, there is a need to be aware of your personal resilience.

This highly interactive session will give you the opportunity to reflect on your current resilience levels, learn some tips on looking after yourself during the COVID19 crisis, and discuss with others aspects of resilience that are particularly important in these difficult times.

Being resilient can help you bounce back in tough times, cope with additional pressures and stay healthy in times of change. Learning habits that build your resilience, ready for more turbulent times, will prevent you becoming over-whelmed by circumstances and keep you healthier in body and mind.

This short session will introduce you to a resilience model against which you will self-assess against your current state of resilience, show you how a stronger base of resilience will help you cope with changes at work and home.

Code: BH/22/0651 Overcoming Overwhelm online - 2 sessions (Zoom) (EVENT FULL)



Overwhelm – a personal plan


What is overwhelm and what causes it?

Being overwhelmed occurs when there is too much of something going on – we feel
like we’re drowning or being buried.

This can happen for a number of reasons, but a feeling of too many things to do, too
much work, too much work pressure and too many deadlines can be a major
contributor.

Feeling overwhelmed has repercussions on the whole of our life. It can make us feel
tired, interfere with our sleep and make it difficult for us to think rationally. These
negative emotions can make it more difficult for your body to fight off infections and
can have a physical effect with fatigue, neck and upper-back pain, for example.
Add all this together and it can affect every area of life, impacting our social lives and
relationships on top of the work challenges.

All these feelings distract us from being effective and efficient and that, in turn, leads
to lowered ‘performance’ and sets up a vicious cycle dragging us further down.
This can lead to procrastination (making things worse!) and creative avoidance –
doing things that don’t really matter to distract ourselves or things that give us
pleasure, putting off the real work further.

Online sessions via zoom of two x 2 hours (you will need to attend both sessions)

This four hour session offers a practical and experiential opportunity to understand,
appreciate and acknowledge that different situations trigger people in different ways.

What one person will find ‘easy’ another may find ‘challenging’ and adding to levels
of stress.

Once we have an understanding of our personal ‘triggers’ we are then in a better
position to find the solutions to manage our stress, our workloads, and find effective
ways that enable us to feel more ‘in control’.
