Self-care and self-soothe (16-25)

St. Giles’ Centre, St. Giles' Church, Market Place, Pontefract, WF8 1AT

Online only

Face to Face Discovery College Courses (for 16-25 year olds)

Life can be challenging and difficult for people. It can lead to not knowing how to soothe or take care of ourselves effectively. Often, people turn to unhelpful and destructive coping strategies.

In this workshop we will explore self-care and self-soothe skills that can decrease distress and help you to calm through times of emotional distress or difficulty. Through informative discussions and effective questioning, the workshop aims to share creative and useful self-care and self-soothe ideas. There will be opportunities for participants to network, sharing thoughts and ideas.

The workshop builds on and aspires self-directed resilience, shared and lived experience and the ability to contribute to and practise beneficial self-care/self-soothe skills in a safe space.
