Why?

Come and join us to:

Learn how best to manage our internal dynamics to dampen tempers and soothe irritability.

Learn how to manage our external relationships after frustrations have gotten the better of us.

Over the last few months, the world has witnessed over 2.6 billion people impacted by some kind of lockdown. This confinement and uncertainty has resulted in wide-spread burn-out and stress. Tempers flare, irritability becomes agitation; we find ourselves frustrated and easily upset snapping at colleagues, friends and family sometimes further taxing already strained relationships.

What can we do in the face of such unprecedented anxiety and its consequences?Please join the Staff Counsellors Office and the Office of the Ombudsman in collaboration with UN Knowledge & Learning Commons for a webinar dialogue, to be held over 2 sessions.

The first part – in presentation format - will offer insights in two ways: 1) how best to manage our internal dynamics to dampen tempers, soothe irritability, find more patience with those around us and develop a greater sense of equanimity when confronted with stress-producing events, and 2) how to manage our external relationships after frustrations have gotten the better of us.

The second part – in workshop format – will allow participants to experiment with different strategies to manage both their internal and external dynamics. More information to follow soon.
