Values can be seen as the compass bearing for where we want our lives to go. They are our heart’s desire, provide us with direction and give focus for what’s important. This short 90-minute course, which utilises ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy), will help carers:

  • Define what values are
  • Clarify personal values
  • Take action to live in line with those identified values
