Supporting the staff: creating the space to think

This workshop is about how to support staff teams, and in particular how to unpack the stresses of work, reflect on its different impacts, and recover the space to think. We will be looking at case studies, at what psychodynamic theory can tell us, and putting some of it into practice.
