In this third part of a four-part series on building emotional resilience, I am talking about ‘carers’ grief’, how it is different to bereavement grief and outline some practical resources to help you to manage it.
In this first part of a four-part series on building emotional resilience, I am talking about probably the most common emotion, ‘carers guilt’, how it can show up in our lives and provide exercises and activities to help reduce its power.
In this post I discuss a forthcoming four-part series covering the four most prominent emotions carers experience: guilt, resentment, grief and anger and explore how Emotional Resilience can help manage difficult emotions.
In this second post of a two-part series, I introduce the ‘darker side’ of meaning; searching for meaning and creating meaning as a carer/caregiver and include some exercises and activities for you to complete.
In this first post of a two-part series, I will start with an introduction ‘meaning’ and its relationship to ‘purpose’. I will then explore some ‘sources’ of meaning as carers with examples of what those might look and feel like.
In this post I am talking about the term or title of carer or caregiver. I ask the question how important is it to have a ‘carers’ identity or title in how people see us and how we view our own self-identity?
