Good information, wish there was more interactive parts where we could talk and share. Felt like trainers were reading for a script which was hard to keep concentrated. Really liked the information on hormones and how to use them to our advantage to support our mental health. I’ve come away with a good plan to increase my positivity and decrease my stress.
I thought both facilitators were engaging and knowledgeable. I think I perhaps review from a different perspective as have both hidden disabilities and physical disabilities, also a life limiting illness and also a parent of a child with diagnosed ASD ,OCD and depression. Therefore some areas about what 'looks normal' I think can be misleading as I never assume as anyone looks a certain way they don't have either physical or mental health challenges. Also when looking at when there are diagnosis for somethin such as ASD/ Aspergers this can really impact a lot of the areas you were talking about - eg ability to interact with others. I know this course was not designed in that way however I feel there are a wealth of people who would not fit a lot of the examples given. Just a thought that perhaps a mention of hidden disabilities or things like Autism/Aspergers etc and how this may impact would be of value. Also the direct impact of COVID - so many of the things you discussed helping - exercise, health, food choices, interacting with others etc - these are so hard to do. Also the cyclical nature - over weight can effect the chemicals you were talking about, which in turn can lead to seeking comfort in food and self-isolating - which then becomes a cycle etc.. I did enjoy and thank you for the time in thisResponse : Thank you so much Sarah for your thoughtful review and insight. What you say is very valid and we do have more time available to talk about exceptions in our full half day workshop. As we explained at the start, this online version is a condensed version and so naturally we are restricted on time. You'll be pleased to know that we offer nutrition and movement short courses which address your latter points. We really appreciate your feedback, thank you!
This would have been so much better face to face to share experiences and to be able to question as the course went on. Perhaps more time spent on work place and action planning at the end would have been good so that could reflect when learning was fresh.Response : Thank you for your feedback Polly. As we explained at the start of the workshop, this online course is a condensed version of the full half day face-to-face course and so naturally, that means that we were restricted on time. The good news is that the full half day course will be available to you once we are able to meet face to face again and this will allow for much more open dialogue and time for reflection and planning. I hope you'll manage to book onto one of those once they are available, :)
There was a bit of a jump and disconnect between the mental health elements through to the cultural vision. And the outcomes and next steps for the vision could have been clearer. But there was a positive discussion around the content
