This course is for anyone with experience of mental health issues, their friends, family or supporters wanting to learn more about POWER and the skills that can help regulate emotions.


This 5-part course covers skills that can help you recognise and step back from difficult thoughts and emotions, and to find more helpful ways to respond to them. Each session includes a theory part and a practical part. This structure will allow students to develop skills and put learning into practice. The course meets over five separate sessions. Students can enrol on each session separately (and which will be treated as individual courses for enrolment purposes), but to achieve the greatest benefit, the tutors encourage you to enrol on all five sessions as a single course.

Mindfulness: This session introduces Mindfulness based on DBT/RELAY teaching. We will explore the States of Mind model (rational, emotional and wise mind), how to make wise-mind decisions and go through some ‘How’ and ‘What’ skills for practicing Mindfulness. An opportunity to practise mindfulness will take place after lunch.

N.B. Lunch is not provided. Students are therefore kindly asked to bring their own packed lunch.
