Managing Psychological Wellbeing in Difficult Times
This performance has taken place in the past
With Jane Oakland
As society struggles to deal with these unprecedented times, mental health awareness is becoming increasingly high profile in all walks of life. Artists are no strangers to managing their mental health but the impact of Covid on the arts in general poses an even greater challenge for health and wellbeing.
In this workshop we will discuss theoretical and practical strategies to help you manage your psychological wellbeing. We will discuss topics such as understanding and managing stress, developing resilience, understanding motivation and the role played by self and identity in managing wellbeing. During the session there will be opportunities to use breakout rooms to facilitate small group discussion as well as a general Q& A and discussion session.
After this workshop you should feel inspired to take steps towards gaining more control of your personal wellbeing in an environment where you may feel you have little control.
