Stress and Supervision – their role in complex people work

09:30 – 13:00, Tuesday 24th May 2016

Are you and your team engaged in work with clients and patients in extremely complex situations?  Making Research Count have invited three speakers who specialise in staff support in difficult working environments. They are:-

Dr Neil Thompson Author of ‘Supervision Skills’ and ‘Meeting the Stress Challenge’ will outline the importance of supervision in helping relieve some of the significant stressors in complex people work.

Maurice Fenton specialises in working with children in care and leaving care. He will discuss the vicarious trauma of working with children and young people ‘on the edge’ and what practitioners need to survive that work.

Elaine Beaumont is a Lecturer in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of Salford and is a BABCP accredited cognitive behavioural psychotherapist and EMDR Europe approved practitioner. Elaine’s research interests include working with people who are suffering with symptoms of trauma, helping individuals to respond to suffering with self-compassion, and the cultivation of compassionate care.
