WEBINAR: Developing Self Care Skills
January 7, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 pm
Lockdown restrictions and the slow lifting of them has been challenging for everyone, including you …
Even with a strong understanding of your emotions and how you typically react, it’s important to analyse them regularly.
As professionals we are skilled at caring for our children and young people, providing a safe place and someone to listen. This can be an intense and demanding role in normal times but with many children and young people struggling with the stresses and additional anxieties provoked during a pandemic, many of us have been coping with a range of challenging situations from angry outbursts to the difficulties of trying to set and maintain boundaries to keep them safe and comply with government restrictions.
With all of this, it’s not surprising that professionals are reporting feeling tired, stressed and emotionally exhausted.
This online workshop has been developed to support emotional health and promote wellbeing.
It offers practical ideas for developing self care skills and habits that help soothe the mind and re-charge your batteries, without spending loads of money.
