Resilient Compassion: A short workshop Resilience -

It’s More, Much More than Typical Self-care Compassion – It’s More, Much More than a Big Heart 
 
CBC2.028 (Moot Room), Keele University
 
Friday 18 October 2019 - 10am-12pm

 
Ted Bowman, visiting speaker from Minnesota, USA 

 

Talk of resilience has become commonplace. Yet, few easily describe what true resilience means or how to be resilient at home or work. Further, resiliency can seem out of reach or unachievable when in the midst of cumulative stress.
Simplistic notions of compassion are also commonplace; carers should have a big heart is the presumption. Carers also need assertiveness, courage, persistence, and perspective. Quality care is much more than big heart care.
In this practical session, discussions of resiliency and compassion will be related directly to commonplace AND taxing situations of cumulative stress, including endof-life and bereavement. Implications for individual, team, and interactions with individuals and families will be emphasized.
Facilitated by Ted Bowman, author of Loss of 'Dreams: A Special Kind of Grief' and 'Finding Hope When Dreams Have Shattered'.
