Supervising an anxious trainee

Virtual session

About the event

The pre-registration period is a challenging time for all trainees. The incidence of mental health issues in young adults has been increasing in recent years. As a result, supervisors can find themselves supervising an anxious trainee. This webinar explores anxiety in young adults, with a mental health expert. With an experienced supervisor and assessor, we will review ways that a supervisor can support their trainee through their training period to help reduce their anxiety. There will be an opportunity to ask questions.
