The dynamics of a family shift and change over time. When our day-to-day responsibilities include caring for a relative or loved one, the boundaries between our professional and personal life can become stretched.
While our work may offer challenge and purpose, the additional physical, mental and emotional demands of the caring role can leave us feeling overwhelmed.
This practical and interactive half-day workshop will explore the unique challenges faced by carers and help them to identify practical strategies which will support them to navigate this specific phase in their life.
Through a series of activities and discussions, delegates will be supported to:
Develop a broader understanding of the caring role and what this means for the individual
Identify and implement healthy boundaries to support and sustain emotional resilience
Clarify areas of potential challenge and know how best to proactively address these
Establish and contribute to a network of fellow carers within the workplace
Build a clear plan which allows the practicalities of caring to sit comfortably alongside professional responsibilities
