Additionally, it enables us to stay relevant and competitive as we step up to meet the evolving needs effectively. A comprehensive toolkit was developed to provide clear and practical guidelines to help AHPs in their development of a strategic plan to support a future ready workforce.

'A Different Perspective, A Different Self':
Dr Gilbert Fan
Master Medical Social Worker, NCCS
This experiential workshop explores mental health from a personal perspective with applications to interpersonal relationships.
The first experiential workshop is on compassion fatigue and burnout. While the emotional toll of helping others is a normal experience, it may not always be adequately or frequently addressed at the often-hectic workplace. Participants will get to experience the technique of 'Wisdom Circles' that seeks to honour the emotional toll experienced by AHPs. 'Wisdom Circles' bring helping professionals together to bear compassionate witness to the joy and suffering involved in their respective helping journeys. A safe space is fostered to honour the hurts experienced, sharing of struggles, for listening deeply and the mending of weary hearts. 'Wisdom Circles' can provide powerful healing opportunities for helping professionals.
The second experiential workshop will briefly outline a recent study on the resiliency and support systems for social workers and translates its findings to a reflective life exercise entitled 'The Tree of Life'. 'The Tree of Life' exercise is based on a narrative approach focusing on one's strength, resilience and relationship.
The third experiential workshop focuses on adopting a mind-set change to deal with life adversities entitled 'A Different Perspective, A Different Self'. The entire approach is translated from a nursing research on elderly cancer patients in Hong Kong. Its findings have been translated into a step-by-step approach to fostering a mind-set change for the better.
