REPORT ON WHOLENESS AND WELLNESS WORKSHOP 20 September 2020
by Merline Tabirao
21 September 2020
Another successful webinar on ‘Wholeness and wellness' delivered by FNA-UK and facilitated by our very own psychosocial nurse practitioner and a trained life coach - Ms Joanne La Verne.
This was a very powerful and touching session. The sharing between the participants reminded us that we are just humans - that we must be self aware and listen to what our physical selves are telling us and prioritise self-care in order that we are able to care and support others.
We really need to integrate wellness into our daily lives. We need to embrace and understand the multidimensional pillars of well being so that we can be adaptable and able to develop resilience against the negative emotions and unpleasant experiences that we face in our everyday lives. We must welcome and entertain more positive thoughts to enrich our personal, professional and social relationships.
Here in FNA-UK, developing resilience is all about what we are all doing as a team to keep ourselves balanced and to maintain that social connection with each other to keep everyone motivated and focused on what we think we can do to preserve our own and other’s health and well being.
Joanne's delivery of this workshop was both very intellectual and passionate. A big salute to you talaga Madam Joanne!
Feedback from attendees at the Enhancing Leadership Skills Workshop - 30-08-2020
Met and learned from some amazing people today in an Enhancing Leadership Workshop by the Filipino Nurses Association UK led by Jose Ariel Lanada and with the other FNA officers. It was an awesome 3 hour interactive session.I've been an educator for a little over a year now and I felt that my glass was starting to empty prior to this. Attending a session where I learned invaluable lessons and heard how successful pinoy nurses did it, quickly refilled the glass.
This will hasten my journey towards self awareness and allowed me to reflect on what I can do to be more awesome at what I do and be a better leader. Didn't spend any penny but gained something priceless. Kudos to the FNA UK. May the Almighty Father bless you more! Thank you!!! Looking forward to more sessions like this!!!Leonard LeroThank you so much to FNA officers especially to the energetic President Mr. Jose Ariel Lanada for organising this workshop.
