We had a fun and interactive training evening on Wednesday 23rd January.
Michelle Weltman (pictured, on the left) Paralympic swimming coach and Head Coach at Out To Swim led a session which challenged our assumptions on physical disabilities. We discussed how to be welcoming as a club, terminology to use and best practice in communication. Her presentation is attached
Dimitri Spiliotis who is a counselling psychologist who works at Barts with a specialism in HIV and sexual health then led a session on mental health. The session helped us to understand different mental health conditions and we discussed how it might feel to have a condition and how we might best be able to be welcoming as a club.
