Event Details

Safety Net is running a 6 week mindfulness course specifically for health, education and social care practitioners working with children, young people and families. It is not necessary to have practised mindfulness before. Participants will:

  • learn the tools and neuroscience
  • understand and experience the benefits
  • explore using the skills within their work.

Mindfulness is a relaxed state of awareness that observes both our inner world of thoughts, feelings and sensations, and the outer world of constantly changing phenomena without trying to control anything. It is widely recognised as a powerful tool that can help us enhance appreciation of life and manage stress.

Benefits include:

  • achieving balance and resilience at work and home
  • becoming more creative
  • recognising, slowing down or stopping automatic and habitual reactions
  • responding more effectively to difficult situations.

The course comprises of 6 x 2 hour sessions on Mondays, from 6pm to 8pm. The sessions run from 11th March to 29th April 2019 inclusive. Please note there will be a 2 week break for Easter on 15th and 22nd April.
