Event description

Description

The first training day will focus on:

Building emotional resilience to develop creative leadership and social action; and examining the role of faith in developing social action projects and fostering communities – featuring trainers from the Emotional Logic Centre in the morning; and Warwick Hawkins from Faith in Society (afternoon session). We hope to be joined by a range of community activists and those from all faith groups. Local MP Jo Churchill will join with us if her Parliamentary diary permits.

More info: Emotional Logic Centre (morning session)

Emotional Logic is a way to talk constructively about the unpleasant emotions that come with disappointments and setbacks, and to harness and turn those emotions into the energy to adjust to change. It was developed by a doctor to prevent common mental illnesses and socially disruptive behaviour, but has been found since to promote good health and strong character. This is a leadership skill that helps to build relationships during difficult times.

Programme:

  • Seven unpleasant core emotions that all empower adjustment to change (e-motion = energy in motion)
  • Hidden losses may produce emotional and social chaos
  • Solution-focused, values-based, action planning to bring order out of chaos
  • Movement and stuckness - how to release energy for change from emotional traps
  • Further learning for leadership in communities

Faith in Society (afternoon session)

Faith is Society is headed up by Warwick Hawkins and Jenny Kartupelis. The organisation's vision is:

' Our vision is to promote improved community cohesion through better understanding and cooperation between people of different religions, those of no faith, and secular society in the United Kingdom.'
