As we begin our collective, careful steps towards what feels like the next healthier and safer stage of Covid19, returning to our once familiar personal and professional spaces and routines; for many the reality of the Pandemic and the resulting grief experiences of the past year, these still continue to be very present - for us as individuals along with our collective and shared grief... So, as we continue to move forward - in and around our workplaces, how might we support those dealing with the grief of the last year, or indeed support those who are yet to face grief? How might we support each other collectively in the workplaces and as importantly, how might we support ourselves? PROGRAMME OUTLINE: Darren contextualises and explains Kubler Ross’s 5 Stage Model of Grief, along with a brief explanation of the medical interpretation/model. The aim is to a give a shared language of understanding and how we might support ourselves and those around us that are experiencing a grief process. Darren shares a few personal, and professional therapeutic examples, practical strategies, ideas and interventions for helping support our grieving experiences, followed by questions and reflections from the group.

  1. Will all employees be able to book programmes on the GetZeN platform?

    Bookings can only be made via allocated and registered contacts who can log in to their profile.

  2. Are individuals' names shared with the employee diagnostic outcomes?

    All names are anonymised and confidential. The diagnostic will only show the overall outcomes relating to anxiety, stress, energy, sense of wellbeing & productivity.

  3. Can we get in touch if we can’t find the programme we need?

    Of course, we work closely with all of our clients to find the right practitioner and programme to suit your needs.

  4. Do you have a library of pre-recorded content we can access?

    Not yet, that’s something we’re working on behind the scenes.

  5. Can I meet with the practitioner before the programme takes place?

    We go through an extremely thorough vetting process with all of our practitioners, so you can rest assured that they will be of the highest standard for your organisation. However, as we first start to work with clients we can organise a 10min introduction with our practitioners.

  6. How often will we receive the GetZeN diagnostic outcomes?

    For those who take part in the end to end GetZeN diagnostic, we will report quarterly. However, we are working towards a way where we can integrate this into your client profile so you can see the outcomes weekly.
