This Tuesdays #OTalk will focus on how making something can have a positive impact on your wellbeing and that of your service users. I was recently doing some coaching with a friend and this process encouraged me to stop putting it off, stop finding reasons not to do it and find more life balance and resume crafting with a view to improving my own wellbeing. I have started #ThisMonthsMake with the view to making one thing each month and if you would like to join please do.
This weeks #Otalk is on the topic of Personality Disorder and will be hosted by Keir Harding (@Keirwales).
November 14-20 2016 is Self Care Week.
Further information from the NHS can be found here: Self Care Week 2016
This year’s theme is health literacy and the strapline is
Understanding Self Care for Life.
There is so much great OT practice in the UK. This ranges from OT in statutory services, to OTs working in the 3rd sector, to independent OTs, to OTs breaking new ground in diverse areas and of course, support workers who keep it all running! This OT twitter talk is for you – the grass roots practitioners whose great work may go undetected. Not all OTs are able to publish articles or research or present papers at conference or win large research grants, but that doesn’t mean their work should go unrecognised or disseminated.
This week Laura @LYBOT will host #OTALK on How OT’s Add Value to the Low Vision Team.
