But when these emotions persist for too long, they can and do take their toll on personal health, wellbeing, and performance. Especially when combined with the strong perfectionist tendencies and the critical inner voice that many committed health and care professionals possess.
This short course, developed by Dr. Tim Anstiss and Professor Paul Gilbert, aims to help you better manage your mind, reduce your experience and the impact of powerful negative emotions, and help you experience increased feelings of being settled, calm and focussed. We hope it may help prepare you for a shift, improve recovery after a shift, and perhaps reduce the amount of upset experienced during a shift.
It’s a free, 4 session, skills development course. A new session will open every 3 days after you enrol. Each session contains a 10 min video, a one-page tip sheet and a 10 min audio recording to guide your practice. You decide how much practice you do – but we suggest at least one 10 min session each day. The course lasts 12 days and you will have access to all the content for many months.
