The way we care and think about ourselves has a huge impact on us, from affecting our well-being, to being critical of ourselves, to blocking ourselves from building resilience. Self-care and Self-Compassion are good mental well-being and resilience tools that can take a bit of time and patience when first being put into practice.
In this online workshop, you’ll be introduced to Self-Care and Self-Compassion and how they support resiliency. There will be an opportunity to practice some Self-Care and Self-Compassion techniques and discuss what barriers we might face when it comes to putting these into practice.
This online The ‘Selfs’ Workshop is a supplementary session to our Basics of Resilience webinar. This is an interactive workshop and involves practicing self-care and self-compassion activities along with opportunities for discussion.
The ‘Selfs’ Workshop has been created in collaboration with CMHA Kelowna’s Learning and Development team and Peer Supporters, with contributions from people with lived and professional expertise.
This session will be hosted online – access to the internet or phone is needed.
