Covid-19 and The New Workplace: Managing Fear and Anxiety in these Changing Times

A two-part course, delivered to small groups in three hour sessions via live online video link.

The emotional and psychological impact of Covid-19 is massive, and as we negotiate these changing times there is fear. As we live with illness, loss of loved ones, isolation, home-schooling, working from home, being furloughed, losing our jobs and facing a very different work environment, there is fear and vulnerability.


Fear creates more fear, because it spreads, and when people are stressed, anxious, frightened or traumatised in a work environment there are different dynamics, different behaviours, and many issues; for a person, a line manager, occupational health, Human Resources, a team, a business, a company.


This Training helps you identify and understand what happens when you or another becomes vulnerable, worried, stressed, anxious, fearful, traumatised, and it teaches you how to manage it.
