Wellbeing workshop: The 4Ds of Distress: Distract, Dilute, Develop and Discover

26 Apr 2021

Join Dr Warren Mansell, Reader in Clinical Psychology from the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health, as he introduces the 4Ds approach – an intervention for managing work-related and academic stress


Dr Mansell has worked alongside the social enterprise Beyond Psychology to provide this 'ultra-brief' intervention to mental health practitioners, parents, teachers and students throughout the Covid-19 crisis. 4Ds brings together a range of approaches and exercises that can deal with stress and also restore wellbeing in the long term. 

This theory-led and empirically supported 90-minute session will help delegates identify their sources of stress and address them, drawing on their own strengths, activities, preferences and resources to apply the approaches that work for them.

Participants will be invited to take an anonymous survey after the session so that its impact can be evaluated.  This will be entirely optional.

This workshop takes place on 11 May at 10am.
