Are you an adult sibling carer of someone with a learning disability? Would you like to step out of automatic pilot, reconnect with your body and find new ways of coping with difficulties? Then this FREE mindfulness course from Be Mindful could be for you.
Sibs, a charity for the brothers and sisters of disabled children and adults, has partnered with The University of Warwick to offer a free mindfulness course, run by Be Mindful.
Who can join?
This course is for adult sibling carers of someone with a learning disability.
Be Mindful is an online mindfulness course. There are ten 10 short, easy-to-follow videos, featuring interactive exercises, all presented by qualified mindfulness trainers.
The course can be completed in as little as 4 weeks (but most people take a little longer). The great news is, you can go at your own pace, so it fits around your life.
The sessions include:
- Stepping out of automatic pilot
- Reconnecting with body and breath
- Working with difficulties
- Mindfulness in daily life
- Going forward
You’ll also have a peer mentor to check in with you along the way. This person will also be a sibling carer like you.
What will I need to do?
Sibling carers will be asked to answer questionnaires on two occasions before and after they take part and will be asked if they are happy to be invited to an optional interview about their experience of the programme.
Please note that if you have previously taken part in Be Mindful, then you are not eligible to take part in this intervention. The project will run for around a year, from April 2022 to April 2023.
