Foundations of Mindful Caregiving 4-Part Online Series introduces mindfulness-based tools and approaches to caregivers, helping to build their emotional resilience and supporting them to maintain delivery of high-quality and compassionate care.
Based on our popular in-person Foundations of Mindful Caregiving course, this shorter online session includes the following modules:
- Building Mindfulness for Engaged Care
- Sustainable Compassion in Caregiving
- Loss in the Context of Caregiving
- Maintaining Healthy Boundaries
