Case Study 1 – NHS Black Country
Tranceform became an approved supplier of mental health at work support services to the management and staff of the Sandwell & West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (SWBCCG) in January 2018.
At that time, the group had approximately 200 staff members. In 2020 NHS England began to develop a new model for how the NHS services are delivered and managed across the region which has seen the creation of a new, amalgamated team across the Black Country in which four CCG’s (Sandwell and West Birmingham, Dudley, Walsall and Wolverhampton) are coming together under the umbrella of the ‘Black Country’ banner meaning the overall team will comprise of around 600 staff.
Tranceform have delivered several training and supports services since being commissioned in 2018 including:
1. One-to-one delivery of the ‘Thriving at Work‘ programme – this has encompassed team members participating in the programme at our offices in Wombourne, South Staffs. At January 2020 over 60 team members have followed the programme with Tranceform!
2. In-house delivery of three training seminars for groups of up to 20 staff, across 3 different programme titles, namely:
a) Me, Myself & I – A half-day seminar designed to allow participants to gain an understanding of the foundational philosophy of ‘subjective reality’ as well as the active measurement of the three core domains of ‘intra-personal’, ‘Inter-personal’ and ‘Contextual’ experiences that provide a good measure of individual ‘resilience‘ to life stressors. This seminar also provides tips and advice on how these key areas can be improved.
b) Surviving v Thriving – A Full day seminar designed to highlight HOW participants may be limiting their ability to cope with stress and anxiety in the workplace and in their private lives, by the adoption of ‘limiting beliefs‘ or limiting paradigms which frequently lead to the creation of ‘unhelpful thinking styles‘. This programme also highlights how to develop and use a more effective set of coping skills and tools in order to begin ‘Thriving’ in a wider sense and in diverse situations.
c) Creating a Line of Sight – A half-day seminar which highlights how our perceptions (in various domains) can be significantly modified by both conscious and unconscious confirmation biases and biological, evolutionary processes. Developing an awareness of these potential distortions can lead to the ability to make better judgement when faced with challenges and difficulties.
