Upcoming seminars


17 March 2016

Learn about the importance of leisure and recreation activities in a process termed ‘Brain-Training’.

Recent medical research has highlighted the ability of the brain in people of all ages to ‘change itself’ by growing and reforming through a process known as neuro-plasticity. Leisure and recreation activities are known to impact on this process. Learn how in this exciting seminar.


21 April 2016

This workshop is designed for those working in the aged care industry, or who are caring for older people in their home.

Workers in the Australian aged-care system are known to experience burnout, compassion fatigue and high levels of stress. Learn how to integrate mindfulness-based stress-reduction techniques into your daily life, and to use these methods to assist others.

Specialist teachers
Experienced and highly qualified educators – specially selected for their skill and knowledge in the unique subject area – share their knowledge.

A taste of the Health and Social Wellbeing Masters

‘On the Couch’ aims to get up close and personal with a panel of speakers who will be hosted by a facilitator around the subject area of Injecting Drug Use.

The intention is for this to be a safe space, but nonetheless, one where the audience can ask questions and engage freely.

We look forward to working with you during the workshop and sharing our collective knowledge and experience. Afternoon tea will be provided.

‘On the Couch’-Injecting Drug Use is a collaborative initiative between Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District, Healthy Cities Illawarra, Watershed, First Step Program & NSW Users & AIDS Association.
