Living Life to the Full

12 hours that can change your life!

Following a successful pilot phase, Aware’s CBT-based ‘Living Life to the Full’ course will soon launch fully.

The first course will run from 26 October in Dundalk, with sessions taking place on six consecutive Wednesday evenings from 7pm to 8.30pm. The venue will be the Crown Plaza Hotel, Dundalk.

If you are currently feeling anxious or depressed, you may benefit from taking part.  The course is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which has been shown to be especially helpful for people affected by mild to moderate depression/anxiety. It uses resources developed by Dr Chris Williams, Senior Lecturer in Psychological Medicine in University of Glasgow. Dr. Williams has developed many self-help resources, including the books Overcoming Depression and Low Mood – A Five Areas Approach and Overcoming Anxiety, Stress and Panic.

It is an educational course, provided free of charge, which teaches skills that everyone affected by depression can use. Participants do not have to share their personal experiences with other course members, though you must be able to commit to attending every class.

If you’re interested in attending, please fill out an application form and we’ll be in touch. Deadline for receipt of applications is Monday 10 October. For more information, please contact Anne McCabe on 086-1629948 or at anne.mccabe@aware.ie

    The application form is in PDF form, do I have to print and post? ‘Cause if so, there’s no way it will be there by monday!

    Any chance of an online form? Or even even a word document that I can edit and email?

    Hi Antoinette, Not sure if you posted an application in the other day but I’m sure there’ll be a little leeway. Give the main office a call on 01-6617211 if you want to have a word with someone about it.

    Deirdre, the plan is to roll the programme out in more locations as next year goes on. We don’t have an exact timetable yet but keep an eye on the site here for news.
