We are pleased to announce the return of our tiered delivery, providing online sessions aimed at different stages of the recovery journey:
Green Workshops For those beginning their recovery and who may be going through a period of feeling lost, helpless or hopeless. These are lighter sessions, encouraging self-expression, for example, through the use of different sensory tools.
Blue Workshops For those who have begun to take steps towards making positive changes and are beginning to feel some of the benefits, but who may still feel unsure about their direction. These are more structured sessions that aim to provide learners with helpful tools and strategies.
Pink Workshops For those who have reached a stage in their recovery where they feel comfortable with self-reflection, and are working towards long-term planning. Learners need to have a willingness to support each other in the sessions and appropriately share their experiences.
|Course name: Stress Management|
What is the session about?
Life can be stressful, so how do we cope and build resilience? Using the ‘Stress Bucket’ analogy, we explore some general causes of stress, recognise personal helpful and unhelpful coping strategies and explore how to develop the helpful ones.
Who is it for?
A very useful session for those who are struggling with stress or would like to identify helpful strategies to minimise the symptoms of stress.
How is it taught?
These sessions will be taught over the video conferencing application Zoom and will be discussion focused. You will be given instructions on how to download and use Zoom when you book onto this sessions.
What will be learnt?
We all have ways for dealing with life’s difficulties. In this session, we recognise those strategies which help and those which hinder our ability to cope and deal with life’s challenges.
