About this event

Session 1 - What good self-care means for you and how it can help.

This might seem like a no-brainer, but you may actually need to stop and take some time to recognise your own self-care needs. . You may be so busy taking care of everyone else's needs that you have forgotten about your own. You may be trying to do the things that others tell you are good for you, but they are not what YOU need to do. You may have become addicted to things that are less than helpful, and you haven't even noticed it.

In this first session we will learn about the benefits of good self-care. We will then experience it for ourselves. We will use small group work, journaling, planning and partner work. There will be time to make a plan and help you identify specific things that can support you as an individual.

Foundations of Self-care is a five-session series of weekly talks with Ruth Friedman and proposed by Cancer Support Group asbl.

The other 4 sessions will take place as follows (to enrol click right to open in a new tab or window on each date)
