Organisational Psychologist | Mental Health & Wellbeing Advocate | Pracademic @ Deakin University + Deloitte Australia
WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT STRESS
In this session, Kat will share her experience as a workplace mental health researcher — her mission to understand and define workplace wellbeing in 2005, her interventions and PhD on positive mental health — and later, her work with police officers to prevent and manage workplace stress.
Join Kat as she shares a mix of both the science and practice of wellbeing — including strategies for busy people and why talking about stress at work is critical to addressing one of the world’s most preventable health burdens.
