Coping with Christmas Venue: Recovery College South East, Green’s Hill, Kilkenny 056 7703666 Dates: Tuesday 10th December Times: 10am – 1.30pm How to thrive, not just survive the Holiday Season. Christmas is a time of year that has come to mean many different things for different people, but often it’s a difficult time with the family and financial problems it can bring. Whatever our spiritual background and however we feel about Christmas, we are surrounded by it! In this half day workshop we will support each other in looking at how we may be affected by the different aspects of the festival, including: personal values, money worries, relationships, loss, eating/ drinking too much and facing the New Year, and developing a personal plan to help cope with Christmas.

Let’s Talk Recovery Recovery College South East, Green’s Hill, Kilkenny 056 7703666 Date: Thursday 12th December Times: 10am – 1.30pm Let’s talk recovery focuses on wellness rather than illness and aims to support people to use their strengths to self-manage and move forward. Recovery is a personal journey of discovery – it involves making sense of and finding meaning in what has happened, becoming an expert in your own self care, building a new sense of self and purpose in life, discovering your own strengths and making your own choices and using these to pursue aspirations and goals. This workshop explores the key concepts of recovery and will identify what it means to you. Through discussion, conversation and shared learning, participants will learn practical tips and tools to enable you to start participating and progressing in living the life you want.
