Diabetes – A Psychological Perspective
This informal workshop will focus on the often hidden or unnoticed psychological challenges of adjusting to diabetes. There will be a discussion on the main sources of diabetes distress and how these might be identified in health practice or at home, which will involve some interactive work to get people thinking about their own experiences of diabetes. We will also discuss diabetes burnout and how diabetes affects family members.
The final part of the workshop will focus on what can help to support individuals with the challenges they face and some useful tips for health practice or day to day life.

Bullying in a work environment can cause tremendous emotional distress as well as severely impact on people’s capacity to carry out their role. Employers have a duty of care to employees and there are a number of remedies you can pursue if you believe you are being bullied. For managers it is important to ensure that staff are enabled to work in a supportive environment which maximises their ability to contribute. Sometimes there is a blurred line between performance management and a belief by the staff member that they are being bullied. This course will explore the employer’s duty of care, what constitutes bullying, what remedies are available to someone who is experiencing it and how managers can respond pro-actively.
