CIVIS students and academics are invited to take part in a webinar on wellbeing and mental health at the workplace, organized on the 10th of October 2022, starting with 14:00 (CET).
The deadline for registration is the 9th of October 2022. The webinar will have a length of 2.5 hours.
We are living in a period where the organization of work is rapidly changing. There is an increased reliance on remote work and various forms of self-employment. This has led to significant changes in the organizational structures of companies and the need for individual adaptation to this new situation. Addressing mental health issues at the workplace has always been an important issue that has not received enough attention but in this new scenario, it will require ingenuity and flexibility to tailor interventions to the realities of the workplace setting.
The webinar will rely on several teaching approaches to ensure an interactive and lively atmosphere. Experts in the field of mental health at the workplace from different European universities will give an overview of the topic and will present ideas, policies, and measures that can help students to think about how to increase well-being and mental health in the workplace.
Main topics addressed
- Wellbeing and mental health at the workplace
- Successful policies around healthy work: Swedish perspectives
- The impact of technology on work-related stress
- Reduction of psychosocial risk factors and early detection of mental disorders in the workplace
