Workshop details: 

1. Conflict & You: The Basics of Compassionate Conflict
In this 90-minute workshop you will be introduced to the Compassion Cycle® as a positive, healthy alternative to the traditional “drama” experience of negative conflict. Building on the personalised results of a brief, online ‘Drama Resilience Assessment,’  you will gain a deeper understanding of the nature of conflict, develop self-awareness about your role in conflict & increase your confidence to engage safely and contribute positively in the presence of conflict.  To participate in this ANZSPM Trainee Day workshop, you are required to complete a brief (10-min) online "Drama Resilience Assessment, (DRA)"  as well as a very brief (2 min) context-sensitive  pre & post workshop assessment of self efficacy in compassion skills. The DRA results are  in the form of a personalised workbook which will be provided for you in hard-copy at the workshop, and you will receive an electronic pdf copy. Virtual attendees will receive their results as a pdf on the day before the workshop.

2. Compassion in Palliative Care
Over recent years, there has been increasing recognition of the importance of compassion throughout healthcare, yet this has been accompanied by a perceived decline in compassion across health systems world-wide. Whilst the central role that compassion plays in the provision of quality palliative care is incontrovertible, the literature recommends further enhancing compassion skills amongst palliative healthcare professionals. This workshop explores the novel application of compassionate conflict to the concept of quality of life, with a view to identifying practical steps to inform and improve the provision of compassion and self-compassion in palliative care.
The above 2 workshops will NOT be recorded. You will need to be in attendance onsite or online to watch.
