Caregiving can be an emotionally intense experience. Many caregivers can experience negative feelings, which they may bury or deny; doing this can lead to unhealthy emotional and physical states. If you are a caregiver, or work with someone who is, this web seminar will help identify the difficult feelings and emotions that can arise from caregiving, and offer solutions to deal with them.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe five negative feelings that caregivers frequently experience;
  • Identify four positive ways to cope with these feelings; and
  • List two important benefits of acknowledging and coping with feelings and emotions.
