What about me? A personal development course for carers in Wales


Session 1 aimed to get you started on thinking about yourself and was designed to help you get an idea of how you feel about your present situation.

You probably discovered that you do a lot of things using a variety of skills and abilities – some may be ones you discovered through caring, others may be brought with you to caring. Maybe you didn’t recognise how skilled you actually are, or what qualities you have? One of the aims of reflection is to help you recognise your own skills and talents.

You have now completed Session 1. In Session 2 you’ll look at how these skills, abilities and qualities are developed over time.


Session 2: Learning by looking at my life over time [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
