Endings, Change and Work and Life Transitions
Change is an inevitable part of life and over the course of a lifetime, we will probably experience several significant life transitions. Some of these will be initiated and planned for and others will be totally unplanned. Life changes can include: house moves, getting married, having children, empty nest syndrome, changes in family set-up, changes in health or wellbeing, changes to finances. Work changes can include: promotion, end of a project, change of manager or team members, change of company culture, relocation, mergers and acquisitions.
Whether they are positive or negative changes they have an impact on us as they are often significant transformational moments in our lives.
In this workshop, Kim Morgan will draw on psychological models and literature to share some models and techniques which can be used to help manage the big and small (and inevitable changes) which life throws at us. These include:
- Mapping our change history and how we respond to change
- Our STERBS (short-term energy relieving behaviours)
- Unhelpful responses to change
- How to navigate change – letting go of the old and embracing the new
- Identity and resilience
- Keeping perspective and getting support
