Building a Resilient Community
The start of 2020 has been one of the most challenging time we have experienced. It is important that those working in the community are able to care for themselves whilst they care for their community. This workshop will provide opportunities to learn about the brain and body’s response to stress and how we can look to increase our own and our client’s resilience.
This online workshop will introduce participants to the two types of anxiety and how to manage them, two practical strategies to use with clients to understand healthy ways to build positive neural connections and how we can be proactive in building resilience from the inside out and outside in.
- Increased knowledge of the neuroscience of stress and anxiety;
- Increased confidence and skills in explaining the impact of stress and anxiety on our child and adult clients; and
- Practical strategies that workers can use with their clients.
REGISTER NOW! PLACES ARE STRICTLY LIMITED TO ENSURE THAT YOU EXPERIENCE A HIGH LEVEL OF ENGAGEMENT AND INTERACTIVITY.
