Summer has arrived! And with it, an opportunity to take a moment to reflect on mental health and wellbeing. What you’ll find in this newsletter are insights and resources to help you guide others on their mental health journey – including our new assessment to measure emotional processing in the workplace, and a webinar on June 2nd dedicated to promoting resilience in transgender and gender diverse clients. You may also want to learn more about helping us with our data collection for clinical assessments, or explore the new editions of our popular Clinical Handbooks of Psychotropic Drugs by watching a video featuring interviews with editors of the new CHPD editions.
Finally, we have several books related to treating individuals with depression, trauma, eating and personality disorders, and our journal Crisis is an international periodical with articles on suicidology and crisis intervention – all designed to help professionals provide the guidance and help needed to support mental health and wellbeing.

Emotional processing in the workplace: Why we need to focus on employee wellbeing
Research shows that the healthier employees are in terms of wellbeing, the higher the levels of engagement they feel – and the higher the levels of engagement, the healthier the workforce.
The Emotional Processing Scale – Wellbeing (EPS-W) has been created for use in coaching and development across all organizational levels, and as part of a corporate wellbeing intervention can provide useful insights into how individuals and teams manage change, transitions, and challenges in roles.
