By definition, Emotional Wellbeing refers to how well people are able to accept and manage their emotions and cope with challenges throughout life. Emotional well-being can affect how well someone can function day to day or how they are able to deal with change or uncertainty.
When we are emotionally healthy we are more are in control of our emotions and our behaviour. We can handle life’s challenges, build stronger and more positive relationships, and recover quicker from setbacks.
Emotional health is just as important as physical health, if one suffers so can the other. At Women’s Work we offer two courses to improve emotional wellbeing, Healthy Emotions and Healthy Relationships.
The Healthy Emotions programme is a 5 session course covering the following topics and advising on therapeutic interventions to lead a more positive life;
- What are healthy emotions?
- How to change negative thought patterns
- Building confidence and self esteem
- Strategies for problem solving
- Setting future goals and reviewing personal plans
The Healthy Relationships programme is a 2 session course covering;
- Healthy and unhealthy relationships
- Family roles and relationship breakdowns
Relationships are one of the most important factors that shape who we are, both healthy and unhealthy they can have a huge impact on the way that we view ourselves and interact within future relationships.
Many women come from families where their needs were not met or have experienced an unhealthy relationship, they may have taken on roles in an effort to meet their needs and survive in emotionally empty or emotionally challenging environments.
The course aims to educate and provide the tools needed to deal with emotions during or at the end of a relationship and choose positive and healthy relationships in the future.
