LED BY: Alison Fox MBACP (Accred)
WHEN: 14th November 2017 2.30pm to 5pm
WHERE: ST PAULS CENTRE MAIN HALL

In today’s world bullying and/or harassment of all types are on the increase….becoming more acceptable and present in everyday life. Research shows that 1 in 2 adults will be affected by bullying at some point in their life time either directly or indirectly, with the most vulnerable in our society being at greatest risk. Face to face, text, email and social media are used to bully within our communities, workplaces and relationships.
Whether you have been subject to bullying and/or harassment and/or been witness to its effects on those around you, this workshop will guide you on what bullying and/or harassment is and isn’t, giving you the tools to identify, respond, recover and begin the process of creating a culture of dignity and respect in whatever context you are working in.

This workshop will also include input on how to maintain well-being in today’s frantic society. Stress can be negative and positive and in its worst forms is likely to increase the risk of bullying. Alison will talk on the subject of "Well Being Balance" and contend that much of modern work practice and culture can cause us to loose balance. She has also researched and thought about simple and practical ways to restore well-being through creative practices, some of which she will be talking us through and encouraging us to experiment with.

So if you are someone who struggles with maintaining balance in the face of the many challenges of modern life, or if you just want some helpful advice on the relief of stress or anxiety, this is the workshop for you.
