IbexMind was founded by Peter King, a consultant on extremist media, and Dr David Dean, a consultant clinical neuropsychologist. It offers innovative solutions to teams looking to build their resilience and mitigate the effects of regular exposure to potentially distressing media content.
We have developed a package of interventions, with an emphasis on prevention, specifically designed to help protect teams exposed to challenging online content and to help employers demonstrate their ongoing commitment to mental health in the workplace.
We provide workshops and ongoing facilitated support sessions for teams. Our evidence-based approach enables employees to build on their resilience and manage the potential risks of viewing distressing media content in a healthy way.
We also offer consultancy to organisations and managers on measures that can be taken to enhance support for employees working in this field.
Our approach draws on established psychological models including cognitive-behavioural and compassion-focused approaches, as well as acceptance and commitment theory. It also includes a neuroscientific understanding of how the brain processes traumatic material and how to counteract any harmful effects.
Bespoke packages are developed and delivered by Peter King, who has many years of direct experience working with challenging online content and keeping teams safe, in collaboration with clinical psychologists.
This combination enables IbexMind to deliver an evidence-based psychological training package tailored to the specific work contexts of people dealing with distressing material online.
