WEBINAR - Building teamwork within neurodiverse teams
08 June 2023
A 30-minute webinar in advance of Autistic Pride Day (18 June) in partnership with Form Health and Chartered Occupational Psychologist Karen Royle of Ways to Work.
About this event
In our last webinar on neurodiversity (March 2023), our expert speaker touched on the fact that people trying to mask their neurodiversity represents a particular problem, one that can result in stress and anxiety. In this webinar, we take a look at the issue of masking – and the link between neurodiversity and mental health - in more detail, with the help of Chartered Occupational Psychologist Karen Royle, MD/Owner of Ways to Work. Karen also works regularly with our early intervention partner Form Health.
- Understand neurodiversity and the overlaps with wellbeing and mental health.
- Explore strategies for the individual and adjustments for the organisation, including cultural adjustments that support everyone, whether neurodivergent or neurotypical. Also, how to handle potentially tricky situations with team members.
- investigate how best practice has evolved with the growth of remote /hybrid working.
This event has now concluded.
