Emotional intelligence, palliative care & volunteers

Event 6 July. The insight into your own emotions and the ability to respond to others with empathy are key to emotional intelligence and awareness. These qualities are crucial to the role of volunteers and clinicians in palliative care.

In our recent survey of nurses involved with palliative care volunteers some 89% of respondents agreed that volunteers displayed empathy and emotional awareness.

The Science and Psychology of Flourishing (28 July 2017)

Emotional intelligence builds on the work of the positive psychology approach that aims to ‘enhance and build on what is working well, not just treating what isn't’.

According to the facilitators this workshop looks at the application of positive interventions that lead to human 'flourishing' and high levels of wellbeing including meaning making, learnt optimism and mindfulness.

The Association of Children’s Welfare Agencies is offering this 7 hour program in Sydney.
