Self Compassion webinar

 

Self-Compassion: Relating to Oneself and Others through Kindness
- Hosted by Ms. Cheryl YUNG, Alumna of HKBU

Life is hard sometimes. We all want to avoid pain, but it is inevitable in human experience. How we respond to our own and others’ pain makes a huge difference when we navigate through life. 

Research on self-compassion over the last decade has shown its benefits to well-being. Individuals who are more self-compassionate tend to have greater happiness, life satisfaction and motivation, better relationships and physical health, and less anxiety and depression. They also have the resilience to cope with stressful life events such as relationship crises, health crises, academic failure, and even trauma.

In this CCL-recognised online workshop, we will talk about what is self-compassion based on Dr. Kristin Neff’s work. Through discussion and simple exercises, you will gain practical skills to help bring self-compassion into your daily life. You will learn ways to stop being so hard on yourself; to handle difficult emotions with greater ease; and to motivate yourself with kindness rather than criticism. You can then extend the same kindness to people around you and deepen the connections in your relationships.

Date and Time:  23 Sep 2021, 7 pm – 8:30 pm
Platform:  Zoom
Medium of instruction:  English
Fee:  Free-of-charge

Cognitive Impairment

 

The development of a new cognitive testing apps (EC screen) and understanding the needs of people with cognitive impairment in Hong Kong
- Hosted by Dr. Kenny CHUI,  Hall Fellow of SR Zhou Hall

The ageing population is rapid in Hong Kong and people got aware of the prevalence of dementia. Brain health and the prevention of getting dementia have become major concerns in public health.

Facing the challenge of COVID-19, most of the medical assessments and social services were suspended which caused much inconvenience to people with dementia as well as their family members. With the innovation of the Jockey Club Centre for Positive Ageing and Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, a newly developed app, called "EC screen" was produced. EC screen is an online cognitive screening tool for the citizens and it takes around 10-15 minutes to complete so that the participants will have a preliminary suggestion about their cognitive conditions. A post-diagnostic support programme will be applied for follow-up and you will know more about how we can support people with dementia in the community. 

Let's join the CCL-recognised Webinar to enter a new era of ageing. All HKBU students are welcome.

Date: 14 SEP 2021 (TUE)
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
