On Wednesday 8 March 2023, 1pm UK time, we will be delivering our latest webinar ‘Casualty recording and mental health: Linking casualty recording with personal, professional, and organisational mental health.’
This webinar will be fourth in our webinar series ‘Casualty recording in practice’ and is exclusively for members of our Casualty Recorders Network.
Our guest speakers – Jocelyn Blumberg and Mary Robertson – are clinical psychologists and trauma specialists from Blue Room Psychology & Trauma Services.
They have many years of experience working with trauma survivors and with individuals and organisations who confront trauma in the work context. They promote a model of trauma informed organisational practice to safeguard and prioritise staff well-being and enhance organisational practice. They will be talking to us about how our work can impact our mental health and will share some strategies and proposals for addressing staff well-being at a personal, professional and organisational level.
