"Disasters break things, they but they don’t have to break people"

The Wellington Region Emergency Management Office has paired with Disastrous to create an easy-to-understand workshop about the impacts of making decisions in high pressure situations such as a disaster or disruption.

We will cover:

  • Why being prepared for an emergency is important.
  • What's happening to your body and mind in high pressure situations/the role of stress.
  • How to manage your own reactions/responses under stress.
  • Tools you can use to navigate uncertainty.
  • How we can manage the impacts of stress together.
