RETHINK: Caring for the Carer Workshop Series
Caregiver stress can be particularly damaging, since it is typically a chronic, long-term challenge.

Many people have responsibilities for other people, and sometimes this duty can become extremely stressful and demanding. This 'Caring for the Carer' four-week series of workshops, facilitated by Wellness Coach Anne Costello in partnership with #RETHINK, will help carers to take care of themselves, in order to provide effective care to others, giving people with caring responsibilities the tools and tips to reduce their stress.

*Attendees should register for the series, but are not required to join all sessions.*

The series will support carers to:

- Strengthen focus, memory, and increase mental flexibility
- Build resilience in times of stress, to support the ability to be present for themselves and others.
- Shift self-defeating habits and thoughts and work with difficult emotions, without getting overwhelmed
- Cultivate patience and self-compassion whilst developing empathy and effective communication with others
