A weekly, 8-session, online workshop to learn evidence-based skills to make your caregiving sustainable.

About this event

Tuesdays, April 20 - June 8, 2021 | 2:00 - 3:30 PM

Sustainable Caregiving for Care Partners of People with Serious Illness is a live, online program of eight, weekly 90-minute classes for family caregivers. In each class, you will learn evidence-based skills to help make your caregiving sustainable and reduce burnout.

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.

There will be one break during each session.

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
  • Positive intention setting
  • Repertoire of stress responses
  • Meeting difficult emotions
  • Mindful self-compassion
  • Challenging relationships
  • Patients’ concerns around “being a burden”
  • Re-framing chronic sorrow
  • Balance and growth in adversity
  • ‘What works for me?’ -- Cultivate a positive mindset

Participants will receive a digital Wellness Journal

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