During May and June we held six Individual Resilience Check-ins facilitated by Bailey and French. These online sessions came at a time when work was changing, and whatever our roles, we were all dealing with varying amounts of fear, loss and isolation.
To recognise these challenges, the National Police Wellbeing Service funded the sessions to offer you the opportunity to access a FREE one hour Online Individual Resilience Check-in.
People who joined these workshops told us they found them uplifting – they enjoyed talking and sharing with others and learning tips as to how to overcome challenges and feel more resilient.
Overall the feedback we received was really positive and many of you asked if we would be running more.
Great news – more sessions are on the way!
Your Staff Associations have worked with us to organise some extra sessions to be held during September and October.
As we all start to look to the future and begin thinking about how we transition towards a ‘new normal’, it’s really important that we build up our own resilience to help us face the changes ahead.
During these virtual workshops you will join fellow police officers and staff from across the UK to have meaningful communication.
You will have the opportunity to share your experience and defuse through discussion, with peers who you may or may not know. The session is a whole group discussion led by Bailey and French, with individuals having the opportunity to share their experiences, if they feel comfortable using the chat function.
How do I join?
You don’t need to be a member of one of the Staff Associations to register for one of these Individual Resilience Check-ins, as they are open to everyone. You can just join the one you feel will be most relevant or convenient for you. Click on the required date below to register.
The following sessions are sponsored by the Police Federation.
There will be more sessions sponsored by Unison – dates yet to be agreed.
The technical stuff
The sessions will be run using Microsoft Teams.
If you are attempting to join the webinar from a Force computer, you may not be able to download the Microsoft Teams app so we recommend using a personal device (laptop, phone or iPad) so that you can access the session.
Please note that these workshops are interactive, using breakout rooms so that you can connect and talk to your peers.
Therefore you can sign up to more than one workshop, as you will connect with different people each time.
With every sign-up, you’ll receive free resources on the PERMA model of wellbeing and on psychological capital, which supports building our resilience.
