SUPPORTING MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Performing Medicine, specialist in arts-based healthcare training and research, has announced its new Open Programme Autumn Season; a range of live courses and creative workshops designed specifically for health and social care professionals to manage post-pandemic workforce changes and challenges.
The programme, which applies a range of art-based skills and techniques to support mental health and wellbeing, is available to those working in a health and social care environment across clinical and non-clinical roles. From self-care and managing stress, to communicating with a mask, and anatomical art; there is an exciting range of high-quality interactive workshops and courses, ranging from evening sessions to four-week courses, both live online and face-to-face.
• Self-care & managing stress – understand the strategies needed to help look after yourself and improve wellbeing.
• Communicating with a mask – simple, effective ways to cope with the challenges of communicating while wearing PPE.
• Effective conversations – develop techniques to improve the quality and impact of conversations in the workplace.
• Presentation skills – build confidence and overcome anxiety through a range of creative exercises and techniques.
• Anatomical art – an exceptional anatomy art course covering drawing, painting, and collage, with an opportunity to create your own anatomical artwork.
Jo McLean, executive director at Performing Medicine said, “The recent easing of restrictions does not mark the end of the pandemic or the challenges for the health and social sector workforce. We are mindful that there remains a strong need to support people working in the sector; to help people adapt to the changes and manage the ongoing challenges. Performing Medicine’s Open Programme Autumn 2021 is led by expert artist practitioners who work across movement, voice and sculpture using skills and techniques to support mental health and wellbeing.”
