This course is based on a resource booklet, ‘Taking Care of Me’ which we developed with a team of care-experienced young people working in partnership with a clinical psychologist. The group drew on personal and professional experience to design a guide that is both practical and accessible to other care-experienced young people and will be used as a resource during the training session.
This training will provide professionals and carers with strategies to support care-experienced young people and focuses on the following topics:
Recognising and dealing with stress
The role in wellbeing of living according to our values
Identifying and accessing social support, and
Developing and maintaining self-esteem
In the meantime, we encourage you to take a look at the guide “Taking Care of Me” which is the inspiration for the course and contains information about managing stress and improving wellbeing.
