Keeping your brain healthy from birth to 100 years and beyond
Our brains are an essential and yet much neglected part of our being. The adult human brain weighs around 1.4 KGs or 3lbs it is responsible for every thought we have, every word we say, every movement we make, every breath we take and everything else we do.
Despite its importance in our lives we tend to not give much thought to the brain or how to keep it healthy. Suitable for practitioners working with infants, children and older people, UNISON activists and those members who are thinking about life post retirement this half day workshop explores brain health from pregnancy and infancy through to old age.
It uses fun and interactive approaches to explain how the brain develops through childhood, adolescence and adulthood. The many different factors including education, nutrition, poverty and stress that affect brain health will be discussed and the things that we can to help our brain age well.
This training will be delivered by Dr Una Lynch from Sonrisa Solutions Ltd., a qualified nurse, midwife and health visitor she has worked in academia, policy and practice for over thirty years and holds a doctorate is in governance.

Organising to Win
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.
