POSTPONED – How To Sleep Well (Evening)
Sleep is essential for health and well-being. People who have difficulty sleeping are more likely to suffer from serious medical conditions, such as obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes. Lack of sleep can also aﬀect your cognitive performance, alertness, reaction time, memory, and learning and may affect your daily activities, work, social life, and overall well-being.
Most people who experience sleep disturbance treat themselves with over-the-counter medicines. However, there is increasing evidence that long-term use of such drugs may have negative side-effects including dependency, daytime drowsiness, nausea, fatigue, confusion, and memory problems. “Sleep hygiene” is a set of habits or routine that are believed to contribute to improved sleep.
This two part workshop will explore a range of evidenced-based sleep intervention methods developed by occupational therapists to create and maintain daily life and sleep hygiene routines that promote optimal sleep.
Participants will be able to practice some tried and tested techniques and be given some practices to try at home between part one and part two. Participants should therefore, attend both workshops and cannot attend the second one unless they have attended the first one. It will be delivered by Monique Harte and Greg Kelly, School of Health Sciences, Ulster University.

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. 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.
