A Mental Health Awareness Week webinar
with CITMA

Thursday 12 May 2022
12.30 – 1.30 pm


Work together with your peers in the industry to evolve your approach to stressful situations and improve your coping strategies.


The Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys (CITMA) have kindly invited IP Inclusive supporters to their free webinar to mark Mental Health Awareness Week from 9 to 15 May 2022.

In this session, you will work together with other IP professionals to exchange your ideas and experiences on how stress can be managed before it becomes overwhelming.

We will also examine the ways that participants currently think and feel in specific situations, and seek to shift the patterns of stress.

By introducing a “risk assessment” approach to reviewing stressors, and emphasising the importance of rest as a tool to handle stress, this webinar will enhance your abilities to prevent stress from becoming a detrimental force in your life.


Learning objectives

  • Stress management techniques
  • Identifying stressful situations before they fully develop
  • Changing your thought patterns
  • The importance of breaks and rest
