With so many people unemployed or in financial or business trouble in Ireland today the crew at ICanWork4U.com are always looking for something positive to pass along to jobseekers on our website http://www.icanwork4u.com
Life Skills recently popped up on our radar. LIFE SKILLS is a completely FREE educational and motivational programme from AWARE which can be accessed through secure internet from your pc or laptop in the comfort of your own home or office.
The Life Skills course is self-directed, mentor-moderated and is designed to help anyone who is susceptible to difficulties with low mood, but who are not currently depressed.
This programme has been designed and delivered by Aware and we think it really is effective and helpful.
AWARE ( http://www,aware.ie ) are best known for helping those suffering from depression, but this Life Skills initiative of theirs is a new development. Life Skills is really meaningful and is designed to equip any of us to handle stress, worry and disapointment in our lives, including our working lives, as an employee or business owner. With the help of a series of easy-to-follow modules and support from a trained Aware volunteer, participants can learn more about how to manage feelings of stress, worry, anxiety or depression, and learn simple and practical skills to help them cope with life’s challenges. You can read more about the course and apply for inclusion here http://www.aware.ie/help/life-skills-online-programme-information/
It is free to use and has proven successful for previous participants.
Life Skills got a thumb’s up from Icanwork4u. Have a look for yourself and decide if it could help you or a friend or colleague. Remember, while this may not be for you, it just may be the tonic someone you know may really benefit from. Please feel free to pass it on.
