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.
