Family Carer and Clinical Reviewer Day

Friday 20th October 2017. As part of the ongoing support of the independent reviewers who commit their knowledge, time and energy to the Care Treatment Review process (CTR), the National Development Team for Inclusion are hosting a day for reviewers to explore how you can develop your resilience to manage any strong or emotional feelings you may have after attending a CTR.

To lead us through this day, we are delighted to have Dene Donalds at the helm, who through this offering of top tips, experiential learning, research and signposting to helpful resources to improve resilience, will give you an introduction on how to build personal and collective resilience, that can improve performance.

The aim of the day is that participants will leave with an appreciation of the importance of developing individual and collective mindfulness-based resilience for themselves, colleagues and the people they provide a service to. With new ideas, practical exercises and information to use after the training.
