Description

Employee well being and mental health is a major challenge for business owners - Does employment law help or hinder employee retention?

About this Event 

Workplace stress is often accepted as a norm. The pace of change and the growth in competition is forcing every business to try to get more from their resources, their people in particular. Yet as individuals, home life is now also more stressful and getting more pressurised everyday. We live in the 'glasshouse' of social media, constantly bombarded by images of everyone else's ‘perfect’ lives and unattainable ideals. No wonder then that mental health issues have become much more prevalent in recent years and, in some sectors, they have even become the main source of employee absence. Our reluctance as employers to talk about mental health or work related stress merely makes matters worse, and our downright fear of employment law means we often look the other way. This workshop will help you to begin to explore your duty of care to employees.

How do you systemise an approach to avoid falling foul of employment law? And in so doing, how can you create an environment that not only supports staff well being, but also helps you to attract the most talented staff to drive your business forward?There will be short presentations from employment law specialists Elcons and accountants and business advisers, Ascentis, as well as group discussions and a real world case study.

Description

“Infant Mental Health: Babies & Brains& and& Bonding” is designed to help practitioners working with infants, children, parents and families to understand how early relationships impact upon a baby’s brain development and the importance of sensitive parenting for optimal social and emotional development – in infancy and beyond. It is also appropriate for practitioners working with adults experiencing mental health difficulties to think about the adult’s experiences as an infant.

“Infant Mental Health: Babies,& Brains& ;and& Bonding” provides both a theoretical knowledge base, informed by neuro development and attachment theory, and a space for practitioners to consider how this applies to practice. Many practitioners may be experienced in attachment theory and/or recognising & baby& cues, however IMH: BBB extends this to explore the relationship between these and brain development.The training is a full day session that includes PowerPoint, interactive exercises, group activities and video excerpts delivered by two members of the Leeds Infant Mental Health Service. This is our fifth year of delivering this training and it has evaluated very positively.
