Compass’ Voluntary Sector Training

Article date
14 June 2022

Compass Recovery College are bringing back their free voluntary sector mental health and wellbeing training. These workshops are open access to staff, volunteers and befrienders alike. The goal of this free training is to boost voluntary sector mental health and wellbeing knowledge and help those supporting others to take control of their own mental well-being.

Friday 8th July 10-12:30 [ONLINE @ ZOOM]
Professional Boundaries
This session explores how voluntary sector staff and volunteers can set professional boundaries when working with mental health challenges. These boundaries can support our work and provide a safe and secure environment from which to work with our service users.
These sessions will support us to be mindful of when it is appropriate to self-disclose, the danger of too much self-disclosure and the risks of transference and counter transference. The aim is to enable service users to take charge of their wellbeing by providing opportunities for growth and self-development.
