This practical and solution-focused workshop aims to support the mental health, wellbeing and resilience of frontline workers, with a particular focus on managing vicarious trauma.

The course will enable you to better understand how frontline work can affect your nervous system and to utilise this knowledge to reduce stress, anxiety, low mood, and vicarious trauma.

With a key focus on reflective practice skills, the course will explore how to manage difficult emotions and challenging circumstances.  You will leave the course with your own individually tailored wellbeing tool kit.

This course will support you to:

  • Improve your understanding of vicarious trauma and the impact of frontline working on the nervous system
  • Explore ways to better manage difficult emotions, i.e., low mood, depression, anxiety, and stress
  • Increase self-awareness of personal triggers
  • Develop reflective practice techniques and tools
  • Identify internal and external wellbeing resources available
  • Identify personal barriers to implementing change and find creative solutions
  • Develop an individually tailored self-care tool kit

Please note, this course has been adapted from Worker Wellbeing: Reflective Frontline Working.  

Who should attend?

Suitable for all frontline workers.




This is a one-day course on 9 July 2024 which will be taking place at a training venue in Brighton.


The workshop was very useful and thought provoking.  It was great to have the opportunity to reflect on the pressures of work with a skilful facilitator who had first-hand knowledge of the environment we work in.



This course is also available in-house, and prices start from £798 for up to 12 people to be delivered in a suitable training venue.  This course is not currently available via Zoom.
