This workshop was run last year and, due to high demand, the Branch is pleased to be able to offer the repeat event for student/early career members.
Trainee and early career psychologists must navigate a variety of challenges as they enter the profession. While balancing clinical practice, research, and coursework (along with the rest of their lives), it is essential that they are able to adequately maintain their own wellbeing. This workshop in is aimed at psychologists with provisional or general registration who are postgraduate/4+2/5+1 training, although all psychologists are welcome.
Strategies for self-care and related exercises will be the primary focus of the workshop.
At the end of this three-hour workshop, participants will be able to :
- Identify common stressors experienced by trainee psychologists;
- Identify common barriers to self-care;
- Discuss and demonstrate practical approaches for managing stressors and self-care at individual, group, and organisational levels.
