Workshop to promote the WELLNESS of workers and students in the health sector with the intention of optimizing their professional, social and emotional capacity.

This is a workshop for employees/students in the health sector that allows them to develop/promote to the maximum their subjective wellbeing by preventing the psychosocial risks that affect their professional capacity as well as their physical and emotional health.

Wellness translates into a better quality of life, giving people the tools to face difficult situations and solve them in the best way. The process of achieving wellness includes changes in pre-established negative social and cultural patterns that we often use to deal with situations that impact our physical and emotional health.

Our workshop includes presentations, exercises, videos and micro-practices that have allowed us to achieve significant changes in the wellbeing of professionals and students in the health sector, as well as employees in different environments. The benefits we have found include: improved self-concept of workers in relation to their wellness, reduction of extended fatigue, resilience, teamwork and emotional health. Studies have shown significant differences in participants' quality of life, as well as in their relationships and skills in work and family life as a result of attending the workshop.
