Dads & Male Carers Workshop: Managing the Stress of Caring – Self Care (1 of 3)

PSC is offering a series of 3 linked workshops for all Berkshire Dads, foster carers, adopters, special guardians and kinship carers.

Research shows that parents and carers of children with special needs often experience chronic stress leading to physical, emotional as well as mental health problems, social isolation and reduced capacity for caring over time.

This isolation can be greater for dads and male carers as it is often coupled with financial pressures and general lack of understanding and support.

Workshop 1: Strategies for self-care

Date: Wednesday 23rd October 2019

Time: 7pm – 9pm (refreshments provided)

Cost: £5

Please click here to book.

We recommend that parent/carers attend all three workshops.

Workshop 2: Understanding how our beliefs can affect our stress levels: 20th November 2019.

Workshop 3: Managing our emotions to reduce anxiety: 11th December 2019.

This workshop was funded by The Earley Charity and will be facilitated by PSC specialist practitioner Peter Burton. Other areas of PSC work receive no funding at all, for example our Helpline, so we are always grateful for any donations however large or small.

Please note that we cannot accommodate children at this event and require 7 days notice of cancellation to offer a refund.
