We understand how difficult a time this is for everybody, and particularly for people who experience long term health conditions.
As SLaM Recovery College is unable to offer any classroom-based workshops now, our team has been working behind the scenes to develop some online content, including vlogs, webinars and e-learning.
Every week we will email you the details of webinars we are offering in the following week.
These sessions are available to everyone, free of charge. You don’t need to be a SLaM Recovery College student or have any connection at all to South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. We just ask that you answer a few questions and let us know which sessions you’d like to be a part of, using one of the registration form links below, and we’ll then send you links to the webinars you’ve chosen.
Here are next week’s webinars:

Bereavement during lockdown: supporting ourselves and others whilst grieving | 2:30pm-3:30pm |Thursday 14th May
The course gently leads us through the four phases (or ‘layers’) of mourning as described by John Bowlby, the founder of attachment theory. We will be thinking about and sharing ways of supporting the grieving process within the restrictions of the pandemic.*
*We realise that by enrolling for this course, you may recently have been bereaved, or know some-one who has and would like to help them. Your emotional wellbeing at this sad time is of absolute importance to us. With this in mind, we ask you to let someone who you trust know that you will be doing this course - this person will be your support contact. When you join us for the webinar, please keep your mobile beside you in case you need to call or text your support contact. Ask them to check how you are when the course starts at 2.30pm, and also when it ends around 3.30pm. Perhaps your contact might be able to join you online for the course. We want you to know that you are warmly welcome, and that you are not alone in your grief.
N.B. Once you’ve got a link to a webinar you’ll able to use it again to watch a recording of the session after the live feed has ended.
