A not for profit independent fostering agency that provides specialist fostering services booked a customised Mindfulness & Compassion 3 day course to help train and support their staff.
Their objective was to develop more effectual competencies – resilience, teamwork, collaboration, communication and problem solving. Pre-course discussions also revealed the need to teach staff techniques to help maintain their own health and wellbeing. When carers continually replenish themselves, they maintain wellness and avoid depletion and burn out that results from caregiver fatigue.
The customised training programme was held at an external site over 2 full days and was very successful in exceeding all of the clients objectives and more.
