Given August is usually the time most people relax and take time off work the Career Development Institute is this month focusing on work life balance and mental health issues.
All the resources mentioned, and many more, are also accessible with direct links from the CPD Resources area of the Members’ Area of the CDI website. Resources are arranged according to the National Occupational Standards: Career Development (NOS:CD).
Resources related to work-life balance are in NOS:CD05 and 09. Remember too that the CDI’s Code of Ethics requires that ‘Members have a duty of care to themselves, both in terms of their personal integrity, personal safety and their capacity to practise in order to provide an effective service to clients.’
