The NTI Wellbeing Series is a collection of half day seminars designed to enhance your personal, professional and community’s wellbeing. All are based on Buddhist philosophy, providing a range of evidence-based approaches and tools that can be directly applied to your everyday life and career.
Personal and professional development
Each seminar focuses on a specific area within health or the community – providing valuable information for professional development and enhancing your personal wellbeing.
ENHANCING HEALTH AND WELL BEING THROUGH LEISURE AND RECREATION
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.
WELLBEING IN OLDER POPULATIONS
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.
Experienced and highly qualified educators – specially selected for their skill and knowledge in the unique subject area – share their knowledge.
