 The aim of this workshop will be to build upon your initial 'How to Support Trainees' training, by further developing your insight and understanding regarding support, including what support means for you. This is an experiential workshop, in which we will explore models and approaches for support. We will be working within the principle of “working from the inside out”, so there will be opportunity for you to try out the models for your own development before considering how they may apply to supporting your trainee. There will be time to consider blocks to wellbeing for both you and your trainee. The facilitators are trained coaches with considerable experience of training doctors at all stages of their career. This knowledge will be integrated into the day. This one day workshop will be delivered by zoom. We look forward to welcoming you
