Minding Ourselves: Uprooting the Roots of Stress (September, Online)

At the root to a lot of unhealthy stress is irrational thinking. We are all thinking beings and we have an ‘internal dialogue’ going on in our minds, almost as if we are talking to ourselves. However, we only ever express a fraction of this thinking. These private
thoughts directly impact on our feelings and consequently how we interact with others.

When emotionally distressed we can make conclusions about ourselves, others and the world without recourse to the ‘voice’ of reason. This is why we do not all make the same sense of the same things. The very best of us are vulnerable to illogical, irrational and unhelpful thinking, particularly when emotional or under pressure. In a climate of increasing stress due to changes within the work environment we need to make the best possible sense of changes and challenges.

This online webinar will demonstrated how thinking affects how we feel and behave. Participants will learn about unhelpful thinking and belief systems. They will learn how to become more rational and compassionate in their approach to work and life in general. Evidence- based strategies that are linked to positive mental health and help keep us positive during challenging
times will also be taught.

The target audience for this event is: FET Staff including teachers, tutors, trainers, co-ordinators, managers.

Shane is a Chartered Psychologist of the Psychological Society of Ireland and is dedicated to teaching the very best self-help psychology to empower people to enhance the quality of their lives.
