Dr Ray Owen - Part 2

Season 3 Episode 31

P-Soupers – thanks for tuning in – this week – it’s part two of my chat with clinical psychologist and brilliant human, Dr Ray Owen. In the opening moments of this episode you'll hear a clip from Ray - talking about arriving well in a conversation – whether it’s a palliative care nurse about to have a really difficult and emotional conversation with a fellow human or a manager, preparing for a difficult performance conversation – we can prepare to arrive well in both of these scenarios.

We cover loads more in our chat – you’ll hear about his workshop at the ACBS UK & ROI in November which is called "ACT for Long Term Health Conditions - Adjustment to Long Term Health Conditions: how Psychological Flexibility can help."

Please note - the main content was recorded and edited before the latest announcement about the conference. The conference will now be a two day event on 16 & 17 November and the pre-conference workshops will now be incorporated into those two days. You can find out all about it and sign up here!

And you'll get to hear not one, but TWO fabulous takeaways!
