This training is perfect if…
You’re a nurse, or
You’re an aged care professional, or
You’re a community care professional, or
You’re a volunteer in a hospital, hospice, aged care facility…
You have patients/clients/residents that you see, day in and day out or you have looked after for months or even years…
You laugh together,
You share stories,
You know their loved one’s names,
You know their likes and dislikes,
You know their medical history,
You’ve talked about anything and everything,
They almost feel like family to you…
The challenge is…they’re dying…
Where do you fit?
How are you meant to feel?
Are you allowed to grieve as you would for a friend?
But you’re a professional or ‘just’ a volunteer
How do you deal with all your feelings, especially at times that you just want to cry?
Are your relationships with these patients/clients acknowledged by your workplace?
When the patient/client/resident dies, are you allowed to attend their funeral?
Is there any support from your workplace?
How do you navigate these experiences?
Do you get worn down by all of this?
How do you avoid burning out?
How do you avoid becoming de-sensitised?
Would you like support to not struggle with the emotions of this all so much?
Do you want help to balancing all of what you feel?
Would you like to be able to manage these situations within yourself?
Do you want to feel resilient?
If any of the above resonates with you, then this workshop might just be what you are looking for.
In my work with the dying, I see professionals and volunteers like you struggling.
I hear your stories of your emotions and your relationships not being acknowledged, let alone honoured.
I hear you when you say that you don’t want to shut down how you feel as you love caring for those you serve, but it’s so hard when they die, because where do you fit?
This workshop will help you with this. It includes:
- What resilience is
- Why resilience is important
- Specific ways you can strengthen your resilience
- When a resident/patient dies
At the end of this workshop, you will
Be able to explain what resilience is and why it’s important
Have techniques to help you strengthen/maintain your resilience
Have meditations to keep that you can use as often as you need
Resilience doesn’t deny the struggle, the challenge, the stress, the heartbreak.
It acknowledges all of these emotions and believes that they are not permanent.
This workshop is interactive in nature, it’s not a 6hr lecture presentation.
There are group discussions, activities and videos, all with an underlying energy of personal development. If you prefer academic style presentations, this workshop might not be for you.
You will also get to experience the meditations that you get to keep.
This training used to be delivered as a half day workshop, but due to extra content and feedback from previous participants, it is now offered as a full day training.
As part of this training you will also receive TWO FREE MEDITATIONS for you to keep and re-use as you need.
This workshop provides you with 6 CPD hours.
You will receive a certificate at the end documenting your attendance at the workshop and validating the CPD hours.
This training can also be delivered to the staff/volunteers within your organisation.
