Working in contemporary healthcare environments can be an incredibly rewarding experience but it can also be stressful and challenging. Everyone can experience stress of some kind; the difference can be how we manage that stress. We may not be able to avoid the stress but we can have control over how we manage in the moment and how we bounce back afterwards.
Resilience in Health can suggest activities that support review, reflection and restorative debriefing. Midwives and nurses do not go to work with an intention to harm but things can go wrong. When they do, it is important to seek independent expert support and advice; Resilience in Health can provide critical incident debriefing. We will focus on your psychological safety throughout our discussions. We are experienced at using psychological first aid techniques to assist you to explore the situations to get a deeper understanding of what worked well and what could be improved. This is the first step towards absorbing, recovering and adapting after critical incidents.
Resilience in Health can be there at every step of the debriefing journey for an individual, team or organisation. Alternatively, we can step on and off the journey as required. Both Cathy and Sue have vast experience in this area and are passionate about supporting staff to understand and experience safe, respectful and restorative activities to strengthen your resilience to bounce back in a healthy way.
