Youth Mindfulness and CALM Training have long held shared values and aspirations. After several years of discussion, it became apparent that a valuable collaboration could take place. CALM Presence is the fruit of those shared aspirations.
In working with people who experience distress, feelings of fatigue, burnout and stress can seem unavoidable for caring professionals. However, if we can find ways to nourish our own wellbeing – cultivating our innate capacities for mindfulness and compassion – we discover that not only are we better able to cope, we can also realise a sensitive, wiser and more responsive approach to the people we work with. CALM Presence is an experiential 2-day course in the why, what and how of relating to ourselves and others with mindfulness and compassion.
This course offers an experiential exploration of mindfulness and compassion. You’ll learn about the new science underpinning contemplative practices; research from the fields of positive psychology & inter-personal neurobiology; and how teams can support each other to create a compassionate environment.
CALM Presence is a training course intended for teams in organisations working with people with distressed behaviours. Individuals can also access the training by booking onto our open courses.
