Duty of Self Care Webinar

The Masks We Wear Webinar


To accompany these webinars we have released two new podcasts – Episode 6 Duty of Self Care and Episode 7 The Masks We Wear.

In Episode 6 Alexis talks with Sergeant Mark Mottashed of Lancashire Constabulary about the importance of self-care, what self-care means, Mark’s experiences and his lessons learned during his career. 

In Episode 7 Alexis talks with DCI Pete Thorp of Humberside Police about the masks we wear and in particular his mask.  Alexis asked him to take part in a creative task, and in this podcast they discuss how this felt, how Pete interpreted the task and his reflections having done it.
