NECAT (North East Cognitive Analytic Therapy)

Managing Work Pressure

1-day workshop led by Dr Lawrence Welch, Friday 28th September 2018

9.30am – 4.30pm

Developing our personal awareness of the pressures created by high level managers and discovering how to respond

In the face of the constant restructuring and cuts made in the public sector, the workforce has to manage highly stressful environments which generate traumatic inner experiences.  Discovering how to manage this process requires developing both a deeper ‘inner’ awareness of the personal feelings it creates and also an ‘outer’ awareness of the social factors which are all too often hidden in the background.  The workshop aims to provide space for participants to develop both a theoretical understanding of the wider issues but also to reflect on their own feelings about the work environment and to hopefully find ways of ‘being with’ the feelings and to think about ways of giving expression to the feelings.  This in turn can help give a deeper sense of the difficulties patients/clients bring to therapy. 

Dr Lawrence Welch is a founder member of ACAT. He worked in the NHS from 1996 before being made redundant in December 2014.  He has a special interest in the relationship between the macro political issues and the micro psychological experience.
