From detached projects to online support, youth workers are skilled at engaging young people, providing social education and opportunities to express themselves on the things that matter most. This can be an intense and demanding role during normal times but as youth workers continue to support young people struggling with the additional anxieties and challenges arising from the pandemic, many report feeling tired, stressed and emotionally exhausted.

This online workshop has been developed to support emotional health and promote wellbeing. It offers practical ideas for developing self-care skills and creating new habits to help soothe the mind and re-charge batteries, without spending loads of money. These can then be taken away and shared with young people to help them learn positive self-care skills for now and the future too.

Learning outcomes

  • What self-care is and why it is important
  • Understand common triggers for stress and how the body reacts
  • Reflect on current coping strategies to assess what’s working and areas to develop
  • Develop a personalised self-care wheel and self-care plan
  • Explore blocks to self-care in different areas of their lives
  • Set goals to improve wellbeing and help sustain positive self-care in the long-term.
