About our January issue
I work with writers (sometimes for many months) to help them tell their stories of their professional lives with clients and employers, to make their work visible and bring it to a new audience in BACP Workplace.
This issue we meet practitioners supporting employees in some surprising workplaces, including in Wales where the power of football is reaching hard to reach communities; in Bristol where the story of the invisible work of helping the city’s homeless population during the pandemic is told, and there’s a challenge to employers and EAPs; are they ready for therapy outdoors?
I hope you enjoy this issue.
