Raising awareness of work related stress is shown to be the first step in the promotion of individual and cultural change to alleviate factors linked to its causation. Mindfulness offers an enabling way of understanding and coping with work related stress, in contrast to the ineffective strategies currently employed by maternity staff.
The MUM Friendly Programme is offered as a full-day introductory workshop or a condensed four-week program to meet service needs. The contextual framework and experiential format utilise an array of key formal and informal mindfulness and compassion practices, inquiry and didactic teaching which build to not only provide an understanding of work related stress but facilitate our inherent mechanism for coping with stress, improving relationships and wellbeing, and facilitating a capacity for selfcare and improved care provision.
The full programme structure, key practices, and modifications to meet specific workplace needs can be discussed on request. Drop in workplace sessions can be arranged to support long-term mindfulness practice and cultural change of the workplace environment.
