From September to November ADCET held bite-size sessions – just 12 minutes at 12 pm Wednesday or 1 pm Friday each week.
These were small action-focused sessions for staff in the sector who wanted to learn, share and try some evidence-based wellbeing practices. ADCET understand people were busy and that it’ was hard to fit for people to fit in one more thing into their day. But we also understand that self-care is critical for people and for the important work practitioners do in our sector.
They created some tiny changes in peoples day to day activities and had a big impact!
Recordings of each session are now available.
