May 5 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Be Well Be Safe Week at U of G celebrates National Mental Health Week and North American Occupational Safety and Health Week. See the full calendar of events brought to you by Wellness@Work.

Through all the lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become evident how important connection is for us all as a core human need. Most of us know what empathy is and the importance it; however, it still is unappreciated as a powerful and delicate way to our being.

Join us for this 90-minute interactive workshop as we explore what it means to use an empathetic approach throughout our day to foster relationships and support the mental wellbeing of ourselves and those around us.

In this 90 minute workshop we will explore:

  • Connection as a core human need;
  • Understand how social connection impacts our mental health;
  • Deepen our understanding of a relationship-building approach to life and meaningful communication; and
  • What it means to use vulnerability and empathy in the workplace.
