The Masks We Wear

Our second webinar ‘The Masks We Wear’ takes place on 15 March at 11am.

This session will look at how we present ourselves, how we respond to others, what we show and what we keep hidden and will discuss the reasons why.

It will discuss our perception of others, how this can get in the way and how we can all understand and manage the masks we wear better.

In this episode 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.
