The Research Behind

Mind Management Skills for Life

In collaboration with RDaSH

and the University of Sheffield

Chimp Management has delivered the Mind Management Skills for Life Programme as part of a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) adopted Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) involving approximately 200 frontline nurses.

The primary objective of the research is to evaluate if a group-based psychological intervention reduces occupational burnout levels; with secondary objectives for improvement in wellbeing, personal goal attainment and reducing sickness absence.

What others say about the Programme

“Being on the Chimp Management CPD has had a real impact on the way I see myself and situations in my life. In both my professional and personal life I feel more able to manage difficult situations and the emotions that they evoke. Professionally I have found greater happiness within my role due to the way I now see myself and how I now deal with situations that arise during the day (especially ones that are beyond my control). On a personal level I have learnt that I need to be more proactive about what happens in my life rather than reactive. I am trying to ensure that I have daily personal development time, recording this in written form, enabling me to plan ahead and then reflect later. I feel, most of the time, (still some work to do on some of my gremlins) I am more in control of my chimp and find myself saying “stop” when I know that she is hijacking situations with unhelpful emotional thoughts.”.

It has helped me to consider my reactions to events.  I found the perception versus reality a really useful tool to make me pause and think about how I am responding to an event.

It has given me confidence in testing environments to find a solution for all concerned.

I think the most helpful and amazing thing has been the truths and values on my stone of life. I am still working at focusing on these but they have already helped me to genuinely stop worrying about the things that I cannot change. This is something that for the last 30 years I have really struggled with so this has felt like a real breakthrough for me

Before undergoing this training, a considerable amount of my own precious time would be wasted reflecting on situations that I could not change. This would largely involve questioning my own judgements (in a disparaging way), along with my own performance and outcomes. Since discovering the Chimp model, I now know that it was my chimp hard at work. Chipping away at my confidence and trying to hijack my resilience.
