About this event

Sustainable Caregiving for Care Partners of People Living with Serious Illness

Tuesdays, September 27 - November 15, 2022 | 2:00 - 3:30 PM PDT

This is a live-online program of eight weekly 90-minute classes. In each class, you will learn evidence-based skills to help make your caregiving sustainable.

Teaching methods include brief lecture periods mixed with experiential exercises. You will also have opportunities to speak with others in structured break-out groups (pairs or triads) as well as in the larger group.

Each class will have its own theme and the opportunity to practice new skills in a safe place, so that they’re more available during the days ahead. Themes include:

  • Attentional balance and grounding
  • Repertoire of stress responses and meeting difficult emotions
  • Positive intention-setting
  • Mindful self-compassion
  • Challenging relationships
  • Re-framing chronic sorrow
  • Balance and growth in adversity
  • ‘What works for me?’ -- wellness practice journals to cultivate a positive mindset

Platform: Zoom Cloud Meetings, accessible on computer (with webcam), or smart device (iPhone, iPad, Android device, Kindle HD Fire)
