Stress and Bullying in the Workplace Sat 20th October


Stress and Bullying in the Workplace Sat 20th October



This workshop addresses the very real issues that emerge from conditions and relationships in the workplace.  Gareth will examine the causes and sources of stress at work, in particular the dynamics of power, control and pressure.  He will introduce the concept of corporapaths and corporate hostages – why thoroughly decent people come to adopt unnatural and inhuman behaviours at work and he will share strategies for navigating high stress workplaces.

This workshop is designed to provide therapists with an understanding and appreciation of how dynamics in the workplace can impact their clients.  Participants will have the opportunity to share their own experiences and discuss case studies which will give them a new perspective and the opportunity to provide clients struggling with relationships in the workplace with appropriate and effective support.
