The Big Return – Resilience and Wellbeing Strategies for Parents
The pro-manchester EDI committee recognises the unique needs and characteristics of parents and how this is rapidly changing especially during the pandemic. To support this group a new sub committee has been established focused on Parents and their relationship with work. A ‘back to’ series of events will be held over the next twelve months providing a forum to listen to speakers in the field and share experiences and lifehacks to navigate our return to normality.
As parents prepare themselves for the ‘Big Return’ to the office, the pro-manchester Parents committee is hosting its inaugural discussion group. We will be covering topics such as getting your confidence back after being at home for so long and strategies to help adapt to the new ‘old’ normal and focusing on resilience and strengthening our wellbeing.
- Introduction and welcome from Emma Aspinall and Tracy Cooper
- Introduction from Impact Psychology and Setting up our objectives for the day
- Explore and recognise the changes that we are experiencing now
- Discuss Job Demands and Resources
- Define resilience and find ways to adapt and increase our confidence
