Training

Self Care for Carers provides in house training to assist staff in hospices, hospitals, community settings, organisations etc. Our staff resiliency and wellness training is built on evidence-based research and involves mental skills building with relaxation and wellness practices. This combination has been found to assist in the development of resiliency and increase emotional wellbeing for healthcare staff.

Our 1 day workshop ‘Recognising Compassion Fatigue and Building Resiliency’ uses highly effective evidence-based approaches to symptoms of stress and fatigue associated with caregiving professions. Skills-building helps staff develop greater resiliency and effective stress management techniques for use  on-the-job. Highly practical in its  approach, this one day programme incorporates standardised measurement tools, also each participant creates their personal Self Care Plan. Workshops are highly person-centered and cater for maximum of 8-12 people.

Shorter in-house courses run from between 3 – 6 hour  sessions. Our programmes can be organised around rosters.

We also provide specific programmes according to requirements of each organisation.
