CPD: Workplace trauma post-pandemic

About this event

The past year has been traumatic for many workers. We’ve all probably read about the intense mental and emotional strain NHS workers have been under, but other key frontline and public-facing workers have also had to deal with difficult, stressful and potentially traumatic experiences. Many people, too, will be returning to workplaces having experienced trauma in the past year, perhaps through illness or bereavement.

Occupational health professionals will have a pivotal role in managing and supporting workers who are experiencing or coping with trauma, and those caring for them. Challenges include understanding psychological surveillance, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the extent of trauma in the post-Covid landscape, ‘Covid fatigue’ and how to become a ‘trauma-informed’ organisation.

In OHW+’s 60-minute CPD webinar at 2:00pm BST on Tuesday 18 May 2021, Noreen Tehrani, chartered occupational health, counselling and trauma psychologist, will examine:

  • The benefits of psychological surveillance in organisations: when and how it can be used effectively
  • The nature, incidence and treatment of complex PTSD
  • Levels of Covid fatigue and signs of post-Covid growth
  • Caring professions, secondary trauma, learning and reflective practice
  • The future for “trauma-informed” organisations.

This webinar, which includes a live Q&A session, is free to attend and will include an introduction to OHW+, the new digital platform for Occupational Health & Wellbeing. Future OHW+ webinars will only be available to OHW+ Premium members.
