This CPD webinar series introduces a Positive Psychology-informed approach to Neurodiversity & Inclusion at work.
A Psychologically Informed Environment is one where people feel safe to be themselves. Their strengths and individual differences are recognised and respected, and they are empowered to participate in and contribute to a Positive Organisational Culture.
Such environments and cultures are once that honour difference and diversity. Wellbeing is valued and practiced at every level of the workplace hierarchy. Managers and leaders understand the value of positive emotional experiences to boost motivation and engagement, and are able to facilitate such experiences.
A resilient organisation is one that understands that challenges will occur and takes action at the level of the individual, group, and system to ensure that protective factors are put in place to buffer their impact.
The series consists of 6 recorded webinars of approximately 2 hours each. Each webinar viewing is followed by 2 hours of reflective practice to create 24 hours of CPD learning.
The titles in this webinar series are:
- Introducing Neurodiversity & Inclusion
- Engaging Neurodivergent Strengths
- Authenticity, Mental Health & Wellbeing
- Resilience in Systems, Groups & Individuals
- Positive Emotional Environments
- Motivating & Engaging Neurodivergent Individuals
The CPD certification is accredited by the Positive Psychology Guild.
The Positive Psychology Guild provides professional and organisational membership for Certified Positive Psychology Practitioners and Researchers, and accredits Positive Psychology training courses.
