Join Glasgow CAN for a 2 hour training session on positive practices for readjusting to face-to-face delivery. Online via zoom

About this event

Many practitioners are now returning to face to face delivery within communities whilst still digesting the impacts of Covid-19. How can we ensure that we protect our own wellbeing whilst making this shift back to in person work?

In this relaxed and informal session, participants will have the opportunity to come together to explore creative self care practices. We’ll have the opportunity to explore trauma sensitive practices when returning to face to face work with underrepresented or vulnerable groups, the importance of setting boundaries and how we rest and digest within a pandemic-both for ourselves, and for the communities we work with.

During this 2 hour session you’ll have to opportunity to learn about good practices whilst adapting once more to in person delivery.

This session is led by Ellie Hutchinson, a freelance consultant passionate about working with organisations and individuals looking to make long lasting impact and positive change. Using a feminist, trauma sensitive and collaborative and creative approach to facilitation, research and wellbeing, Ellie works with folk in the arts, third and public sectors to enhance your knowledge, care and compassion for change.

Bring pens and paper!
