Training to support those attending to understand how self compassion links into empathically focused work and thinking, to build emotional resilience, personal awareness and a mindset focused on positive psychology and self care.
Working in any organisation or profession communicating with and impacting on others, often in vulnerable positions, requires an empathetic approach, and true understanding of why empathy is so important. Working with vulnerable people and managing often traumatic situations however, can create secondary trauma, on top of other work pressures and personal life challenges, impacting on empathic ability, as well as personal well-being and resilience.
Covering subject matters such as leadership, complaints, incidents, inquests, staff well-being, resilience, managing adversity and communication, CCET prides itself on humanising policies, processes and practices for staff and those that use their services. CCET’s philosophy is simple, support individuals to understand vulnerability in themselves and others to help prevent psychological harm, and do this in a thought provoking, humorous, supportive and motivational way for long term learning.
This training programme has been developed drawing on the BE HUMAN Model. CCET’s approach is one of the view that if resilience was just a set of skills, we would all be doing these, all the time. Taking the approach that resilience is not about never struggling, but being able to recognise when we are and the ability to recover as quickly as possible. The facilitator, Carolyn Cleveland, shares with candour and honesty how adversity and traumatic life events can impact on our coping abilities, and how we view ourselves, to set the scene for exploring resilience and avoid care fatigue. Using CCET’s Funnel of Life Model and Optimum Self Model, realistic knowledge, self acceptance, and skills are explored to support people with managing adversity, resilience and self compassion, to build confidence in why sometimes we find managing our own emotional well-being and empathy for others, hard, and how we can help ourselves.
