Resilience through COVID [Cancelled]
In collaboration with Whitaker Training
“This short course is excellent for those who want to learn more about how they are affected by stress & anxiety, and how to stay resilient throughout COVID-19 and beyond. It is also extremely beneficial for anyone who has to look after others during these times.”
Introducing Wellbeing Wednesdays! Led by Bethany Garner (BSc, MPsycholsci, MBPsS), Wellbeing Wednesdays will be an online series exploring how to deal with common mental health symptoms that have arose, or been exacerbated, by the COVID pandemic.
“I am a Master of Psychological Sciences graduate from the University of Liverpool. I have experience working with clients with a wide variety of complex mental health needs, and have successfully delivered 1:1 low intensive therapies. I have a good level of understanding of human behaviour and mental health difficulties, and I wish to use my psychological theory knowledge and experience to make a difference.” – Bethany Garner
The series is going to be based around some of the common symptoms of the current COVID circumstances. There have been reports of high levels of anxiety and low mood – which these sessions should hopefully give some advice for. There will elements of psychology education and information on key treatments, such as CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), that participants can take part in and learn about.
The sessions will be based around the following topics:
- Panic attacks (11th November 2020)
- How to conduct CBT yourself (18th November 2020)
- Mindfulness and relaxation (25th November 2020)
- Information on anxiety and depression (2nd December 2020)
- Loneliness (9th December 2020)
- Stress (16th December 2020)
