Please note this event is aimed at qualified practitioners employed at one of our partner services within the South West Community of Practice.


Staff engagement is an essential part of a well-run service and is linked to better therapy outcomes, improved but sustainable contact rates and reduced staff burnout and staff sickness.  This one day workshop will help supervisors and service leaders to understand the important of engagement, adapt their supervision, line management and organisational practices to suit individuals and teams to ensure staff remain motivated and genuinely engaged with their work. The day draws on a solid evidence base but emphasises the development of skills and strategies to make discernible differences to the way senior team members work. The workshop will also look at therapist burnout which in many ways is the antithesis of engagement.

The learning objectives are:

  • To understand the three core components of engagement and how these can be measured and understood
  • To develop strategies in supervision and line management that will support staff to become better engaged with their work and which take into account individual differences that drive staff
  • To look at service level changes that enhance staff’s sense of investment in the service and the clinical work they provide
  • To ensure a culture of positive management support staff
  • To understand the nature of burnout and how this can impact on staff and service outcomes

This workshop will look at innovations made to working in mental health during the pandemic and how these can become the basis of lasting positive change.


The event is aimed at current supervisors and managers.
