Bank Workers Charity: The impact of language on our mental health

Watch the recording

Event details

The power of words cannot be overstated. They’re so much more than symbols on a page, as they shape the way we think, and influence how we see the world. They affect our moods, and they can influence others too, for good and for bad. By framing our words in a positive light, we can help others to see opportunities instead of obstacles in the challenges they face. And for ourselves, positive and constructive language can be a catalyst for a healthier mindset, fostering resilience, and boosting our self-esteem.

In this webinar from the Bank Workers Charity they will explore the relationship between the words we employ and how we experience the world and provide some helpful tips on how we can use language in ways that support good mental health.

What will be covered in the session:

 This was an externally hosted event by the Bank Workers Charity through the Zoom platform. Accord is not responsible for the material.
