Code: SGC/21/0425 Self-Care to Care Webinar (for parents/carers)

This session is for parents/carers to attend.

We all need to have the energy to care. However, reserves can get used up without our awareness and often then it’s too late and we are fighting and surviving fatigue. It’s important not just to survive as a parent or carer, but to build our resilience as carers first. Being aware of our own health and self-care needs enables us to keep going, supporting, and caring for our families.

Code: SGC/21/0301 Self-Care Masterclass


A 90 min learning session delivered by an expert in the field of positive psychology that will improve your understanding and enhance your work and personal life! At times of great uncertainty and stress, it is essential that we look after ourselves to the best of our ability. If we don’t look after ourselves we won’t be able to look after others. Being serious about self-care, we give others the permission and inspiration to do the same.

The purpose of this training session is to explore the fascinating world of self-care. To identify the resources we need to look after ourselves and others better. Delivered by Paul Wilson, the course contains insights from positive psychology, the latest findings from the science of wellbeing and the lasting wisdom of ancient philosophy.

What is different about the way Paul Wilson approaches and teaches about self care?

After many years in the mental health and wellbeing field, Paul came to the conclusion that most people know what general practices are good for their wellbeing. They don't usually lack information and opportunities. What they lack is capacity and inclination - so that is where he puts his attention. He focuses upon the 'self' in self-care. He gives people reasons to self-care and then he directs them towards the ways and means. He increases people's capacity and inclination to self-care by offering them perspectives and practices that can improve their self-awareness, self-compassion or self-esteem, for example. Then they are more likely to self-care.

This course is delivered via Zoom.  You will be sent a Zoom invite nearer the time.
