GlobalNet21 is a leading forum in the UK for discussing the major issues in the 21st Century. We share a common concern for the sustainability of both our planet and the people on it. With almost 20,000 network members in the UK and abroad, we are making the debate, and democracy, more accessible by enlarging the Public Square and using social networks.
As well as a network of individuals we have also set up a collaborative network of organisations to exchange good practice and transfer knowledge so that we can learn from each other. This network is cross boundary and includes local authorities, housing associations, universities, community groups and social enterprises. Our aim is through dialogue to celebrate diversity and develop community self-resilience and sustainability at a time of unprecedented social and environmental change.
Join us in our webinar on April 14th at 5.0pm when we will be discussing how we can develop resilience as we go through this crisis of Covid-19
Resilience is something that most people need to make it through the rougher times of life. Everyone will experiences difficulties in life, and some people will even experience traumatic events that create an upheaval in their lives. Resilience is not a character trait - it can be learned by anyone, but learning it does require time and effort.
Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens.It also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment. When we practice mindfulness, our thoughts tune into what we’re sensing in the present moment rather than rehashing the past or imagining the future.
To help us with this we will be discussing both resilience and mindfulness with Katy Davies and Harriet Piercy. Katy has studied resilience and run some course on this and Harriet is a life coach and mindfulness is an approach that she encourages especially when people are anxious and worried.
You can join his on this webinar direct and it will of course be streamed live on Facebook.
Many people will be experiencing socialisation at this time and many will be doing it alone. Others will feel anxious and concerned about themselves and their families.
For many this will be a trying time that for some will affect their mental health and may not know where to get advice.
So how can we come with isolation and how do we cope with our anxieties? This is something we will address in this webinar
To help us we will be interviewing Leonie Campbell - a BPS chartered and HCPC registered counselling and occupational psychologist, and is the founder of Psychology For Success. She runs her own private practice as well as working on a locum basis for the NHS and local authority working as a senior and lead clinician.
We will also stream this discussion live on Facebook either at this time or just after.
