What else can you tell me ?

  • Each Program consists of a number of Modules which are structured as Workshops
  • Workshops are packaged as presenter/facilitator-run or consultant-run information, discussion and activity sessions
  • Each Workshop can be delivered by employees or facilitators without specialist training and Caregiver experience

  • The involvement of an in-house trainer or experienced presenter is recommended for best outcomes. LifeWorkx qualified trainer/consultants are available
  • Each Workshop is nominally 2 hours. This timeframe avoids disruption to the workplace and reduces time-related resistance to their implementation
  • Workshops may also be good for conferences – e.g. following an address/presentation

Programs and Modules (Workshops)

Each Workshop includes an Information, Understanding and Action component. Workshop packages contain pre-reading information, workshop activities, associated tasks, and follow-ups. Action sheets support strategic planning for implementation.

Modules are the structured Workshop packages generally consisting of pre-reading information and workshop activities with associated tasks and follow-up processes. Each Module also has action sheets. For example, Module 1: Caregivers and Caregiving The Big Picture has three including: Action Sheet: Negotiating Ongoing Employment
