Mindfulness Training for Social Care with Jane Negrych

Working in any of the caring professions, or indeed, caring for loved ones at home can be incredibly rewarding. Often times, job diversity and the ability to bring joy and make big differences in the lives of others are a source of deep personal satisfaction.

However, unless caregivers take good care of themselves, and are able to fill their own cup so that they can fill the cup of others, compassion fatigue, emotional exhaustion and even depression can set in.

In the UK, in between the years 2009 and 2013, work related stress and anxiety has increased 24% and employees lost to severe mental sickness has doubled (taken from the Annual Report of the Chief Medical Officer 2013), with the NHS, one of the largest employers of those working in caring professions, losing 3.4% of their worker hours to sickness.

Work relates stress is even more extreme in Ireland, where the recent ‘Job Stress and Working Conditions’ report (2018), indicates that work-related stress has doubled in a 5 year period!
