Elcies Disability Care has this month launched the first video in its six-part Friday Feelings social media series.
Each episode of the short video series posted to the Elcies Disability Care Facebook page (@ElciesDisabilityCare) discusses a different emotion we can all have in our everyday lives, including sadness, anger, worry, excitement, confusion and feeling scared.
Led by Elcies Disability Care’s Senior Practitioner Nick Dunn, the videos aim to share practical tips on what we can do when we have these feelings and how to manage them if they become overwhelming or uncomfortable for us.
It is hoped that by sharing these videos through the Elcies Disability Care’s Facebook page, the series will provide additional support to individuals of all ages, their families and care teams in any location around regulating emotions and understanding why we might be having a feeling.
“We all experience a range of emotions in our day to day lives and sometimes our feelings can be overwhelming, challenging or really complex to work through,” said Senior Practitioner Nick Dunn.
“The Friday Feelings Series has been created as a quick reference tool for people living with disability, their families and the wider community to help with strategies on ways to process emotions when they occur.”
A video from the six part series will be posted each fortnight on Fridays on the Elcies Disability Care Facebook page (@ElciesDisabilityCare).
Elcies Disability Care is the disability services branch of Lutheran Care (Lutheran Community Care), a registered NDIS Specialist Behaviour Support Provider.
