Workshop #W5
CE Offered: PSY/BACB
Cultivating Workplace Wellbeing With Behavioral Science
Tuesday, November 14, 2017
7:00 AM–9:00 AM
Studio F, Niveau 2
Area: CSS/OBM; Domain: Applied Research
CE Instructor: Julie M. Slowiak, Ph.D.
JULIE M. SLOWIAK (University of Minnesota Duluth; InJewel LLC)
Description: Workplace stress, driven by a variety of factors, can have a direct and negative impact on employee wellbeing and, consequently, an indirect and potentially negative impact on those with whom employees interact (e.g., coworkers, clients, family members, friends) (Harvard University T.H. Chan School of Public Health, 2016). This workshop is designed to provide behavior analysts with knowledge, tools, and techniques that will allow them to make a noticeable, positive impact on their own wellbeing, on the wellbeing of their employees or clients, and ultimately, on society as a whole. An understanding of the dimensions of wellbeing that tie to both individual and organizational values will assist behavior analysts' efforts to design interventions that promote sustainable behavior change. The workshop instructor will provide an overview of the basic wellbeing concept, introduce attendees to dimensions of wellbeing, describe self-management tools and provide tips to promote healthy and productive lifestyle behaviors, and describe and share data from recent research aimed at promoting and supporting wellbeing in the workplace. The workshop instructor will guide participants through a series of exercises that will allow participants to both identify specific, values-based goals that they would like to work toward and to develop an action plan for change. This workshop is designed to be highly interactive; participants will receive feedback from the workshop instructor, be asked to engage in large and small group discussions, and be asked to share their goals and action plans with other workshop participants.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) Describe the basic wellbeing concept; (2) Describe at least six dimensions of wellbeing; (3) Describe at least five self-management tools and techniques to improve wellbeing; (4) Describe recent findings from research aimed at promoting and supporting wellbeing in the workplace; (5) State at least one specific, values-based goal for improving personal wellbeing; (6) Describe an action plan for pursuing their values-based wellbeing goal.
Activities: Workshop objectives will be met through a balanced presentation of lecture, guided practice/exercises, and small and large group discussion. Core content will be taught through lecture and demonstration of strategies will be provided. Supplemental materials for identifying personal levels wellbeing, developing goals, and designing an action plan will be provided in order to support participant learning.
Audience: This workshop is designed to provide those with a basic understanding of behavior analysis and those currently practicing as behavior analysts with knowledge, tools, and techniques that will allow them to make a noticeable, positive impact on their own wellbeing, on the wellbeing of their employees or clients, and ultimately, on society as a whole.
