Providing and receiving emotional support are an intrinsic part of the human experience. It’s vital to be able to talk when we are struggling but it’s also important that we understand how to best help people who ask for our help and support.

Learning how to provide emotional support without depleting our own resources, support rather than give advice and feel comfortable with emotions is a skill. People who develop their emotional intelligence tend to have better relationships with others, better physical and psychological health so its good for us too as well as the people we are helping.

With all of this in mind, investing a little time into your ability to provide the right emotional support at the right time is a no-brainer!

In this short introductory webinar will support delegates in their understanding of:

  • Understanding the emotions of others by exploring emotional intelligence
  • Avoiding toxic positivity while remaining supportive
  • What helps when someone is looking for emotional support
  • Common pitfalls when trying to support others.
