What will be discussed

It is nearing the end of another hectic year. As in the past we try and hold a forum at the end of the year that focuses on you rather than your clients.

Participants will:

Understand Professional Burnout, Vicarious Trauma and Secondary Traumatic Stress.Develop a practical understanding of how this impacts care professionals physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Understand the physical response to stress. How to recognise it and release it.

Be introduced to the science of bodywork and mindfulness techniques that build resilience as professional care workers.

During the last hour participants will:

Train in basic mindfulness techniques for physical & emotional balance.

Learn to release tension from the body using gentle body and breath work.
