Healing Emotions for Caregivers

Effective caregiving requires both technical and emotional skills.  While caregivers deal with the inevitable emotions of those they care for― anger, anxiety, sadness and guilt ― the same realities show up for the caregiver as well.  This series offers insights and practical ideas designed to give caregivers a hand in both understanding and working with those we care for.  The goal is a more reciprocal approach to caregiving and care receiving.  In rebalancing the caregiver relationship we will recognize what is most deeply human in each other.

Lesson One: SAFETY

When we feel safe and can tell our story― a path toward healing opens

Lesson Two: ANGER

Anger is a gateway to explore expectations regarding mutual respect

Lesson Three: ANXIETY

Antidotes for anxiety are easily-learned body-mind-spirit practices

Lesson Four: SADNESS

Science now shows there are ways that sadness can be good for you

Lesson Five: GUILT

Distinguishing between productive and non-productive guilt is liberating

Each Soul & Science Lesson offers a three step ACT Learning Group Process designed for a minimum hour-long meeting. Before each of the steps, the group should revisit their agreements as a way of creating a safe space for exploration and learning.
