Self-Care to Self Awareness Workshop
Date: Tuesday 30th June
Venue: National Office of Youth Work Ireland, Dublin 1
This one day workshop is aimed at staff working in social care settings, youth work and community based projects who are dealing with demanding workloads, supporting clients in crisis and who are constantly putting the needs of others first as they try to make a difference in people's lives.
This workshop is beneficial for those working in the community, voluntary or statutory sector in demanding, high pressure or stressful environments with vulnerable clients who require a caring response, professional support and targeted interventions. This one day workshop will equip participants with the knowledge and skills to employ self-care techniques in their personal and professional life. It aims to help participants identify ways to prevent or reduce stress and develop their self-awareness in relation to reactions/ responses to challenging work situations. With this self-awareness they will be better equipped to identify ineffective practices and engage in reflective practice to understand and address the needs of service users.
