Empathy Series - The Art of Care: Empathy

SBF Foundation Empathy Series 2021

Taking place last Friday of every month from Jan 2021.  
You will learn about disabilities, the strengths of people in need or what it takes to create kindness culture in the workplace and others. 


The Art of Care: Empathy
This workshop delves into the concept of empathy and the different ways it can be expressed. Its link to mental health will be explored, looking at the importance of both of these for individuals, organisations and the beneficiaries we serve.

We will practice enhancing empathy in our interactions and examine some of the ways in which we can miss opportunities for connection.

The art of care will be discussed against a backdrop of the beneficiary experiencing mental health distress. Knowledge is key in the service of others and participants will be introduced to some of the needs, help and support available for this group of individuals.
