This week, we are very fortunate to have with us as a guest, Michele Grant. Michele is a very experienced trainer and coach and she will be explaining more about vicarious trauma, burnout, and compassion fatigue, this builds on the overview I did in the podcast on the 17th of February. Then Michele will go through three key things that we can think about and consider as to whether or not we are experiencing compassion fatigue, and what we can do to become aware of it and to take positive action
This is the third and final interview in the series for March Male Carers Month and we are really lucky to have Brian Day with us today. Brian is a husband, father, and a working carer and campaigner supporting working carers in his workplace and across lots of different government departments.
This week I am exploring why it matters to recognise and support men’s mental wellbeing; how we are doing this in “March Male Carers Month 2021” and how we would like to continue with this in the future, by collaborating with carers support groups and organisations supporting men’s mental health.
We are honoured to be able to interview Greg Smith, founder of Men Care Too in Tasmania, Australia, and ask him some questions about his experiences of being a male carer, the emotional and psychological challenges he faces in that role and the work he does to support other male carers.
The 3 emotional and practical phases of the caring journey and how to support yourself as you transition through them
This week I am sharing an overview of the three phases of the caring journey, what aspects of caring each one is likely to cover, why it is useful to know what challenges each phase might bring and finally, some resources, activities and exercises, to support you as you enter and transition between them.
This is a quick message to you all, wishing you, your loved ones and friends and peaceful holiday period.
