Event Details

Emotional Resilience - 2½ hour workshop


People working in the helping professions have been found to be vulnerable to the development of burnout and research has suggested a relationship between dementia care and burnout. Self-awareness and recognising stress in others is the first step to emotional resilience.


This workshop is suitable for all helping professions and family carers working and living in the field of dementia care.


Course Aim:

To increase participants’ ability to cope with emotional distress or stressful life events.


Course Objectives:

  • Overview of emotional wellbeing and how we can promote it

  • Look at different types of emotions

  • Stigma associated with some emotions

  • Water course analogy of distress

  • Emotional resilience and positive ways to cope with emotional distress or stressful life events

  • Stigma associated with self-harm and suicidal behaviour and how to reduce stigma and increase empathy

  • Sources of emotional support and strategies to enable participants to see that they can cope with difficult or stressful life events or situations

  • Signposting of how to access help and support should they ever become distresses and need it

  • Engage participants in further training to enhance their awareness and gain additional skills


Learning Outcomes:

At the end of the day learners will:

  • Know how to define emotional wellbeing and how to promote it

  • Enhance their emotional literacy and have an understanding of the myths associated with emotional problems and barriers to seeking help

  • Have an understanding of the myths associated with self-harm and suicidal thoughts and barriers to seeking help and that suicide is preventable

Training Style/Approach

All of us take in information a bit differently. Some of us like to discuss things a lot, Some of us like to reflect on things and might take a back seat in discussions and some of us want to take notes – all of these are fine.


Trainer: Julia Pitkin

Julia trained as an occupational therapist and has a post graduate Certificate in Dementia Studies. She is the UK’s first certified Validation Trainer in Dementia Care, completing her training in Pennsylvania, USA. Her decision to specialise in dementia care was influenced by her work as a quality care auditor for a private sector accreditation company and for the former National Care Standards Commission, where she identified training needs for staff caring for people living with dementia in care homes. Her specialist interest and passion is in person-centred listening and communication, having recently made a training film called ‘Conversations that Matter: breaking through dementia’.
