Code: BH/21/0579 Mindfulness for Social Work - 6 week introductory programme (Microsoft Teams)

This accessible 6-week programme provides an introduction to Mindfulness for Social Work and will enable you to try out daily mindfulness practice as a 6-week experiment; understand how practicing mindfulness may support both wellbeing and relationship based practice, and develop a greater understanding of local and national mindfulness resources. Note: this course does not teach skills in teaching mindfulness to children or adults.

The course consists of live, 75 minute, weekly teaching sessions using MS Teams, plus self-guided learning with video lessons, mindfulness practice downloads and teaching materials via a dedicated course website. NEW: Video lessons include materials from Annie Bertram, a trainer and parent with lived experience of safeguarding processes. There are two brief reflective assignments with feedback.

Live dates are: Wednesday 26 May, 2 June, 9 June, 16 June, 23 June & 30 June 2021.

Daily home mindfulness practice is a core part of the course and you will be asked to schedule in 2 x 10 minute daily guided mindfulness practices (at a time that suits you) for the duration of the 6 week programme.

There are two short reflective assignments within the course but this is primarily an experiential programme which will enable you to explore for yourself whether practicing mindfulness is something you would like to pursue beyond this introductory programme.

Code: BH/21/0463 Presentation Skills online (Microsoft Teams) (EVENT FULL)

This virtual programme will give participants the relevant knowledge of giving presentations in the  virtual arena. It also includes several chances to practice their skills and receive constructive feedback on their performance. As most people find making presentations a nervous experience, the training will be both supportive and collaborative, building on each individual’s strengths and helping people to develop in areas where they feel less competent or confident.

The programme is a blend of interactive small group virtual sessions (using MSTeams) and individual work. It is spread over a period of a month.
