We are delighted to announce our full conference agenda, packed with a fascinating mix of speakers and topics.
‘Dealing with Stress and trauma at work – Evidence and Experience’ takes place in central London on Wednesday 15 March 2017 and is a must for anyone interested in stress, trauma and mental health in the workplace.
Our keynote speaker is broadcaster Sian Williams. Sian has been a journalist and broadcaster for more than thirty years, mainly with the BBC and latterly with ITN. She has an MSc in Psychology with an emphasis on traumatic stress, is a trained trauma assessor and is ITN's first Mental Health Ambassador. Her book 'Rise: a first aid kit for going through tough times' is a study in building resilience after challenging life events.
Following Sian, we have a plethora of compelling speakers with decades of varied experience – both personal and professional – of mental health in the workplace with our own Professor Neil Greenberg leading the way. He will introduce the day and deliver a session on removing stigmas and barriers to care.
We hope you are looking forward to the day as much as we are and will take advantage of this great CPD opportunity.
The conference fee is £150 plus VAT. Discounts are available for charities and public sector, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
