Event description
Sleep is one of the most important parts of our well-being, in this workshop you will learn how to help clients get better sleep.

About this event

Poor sleep has been associated with an increased risk of anxiety, depression and suicide. Sleep interventions may be one of the cheapest and most effective strategies to prevent depression and suicide, especially in communities where there is not a lot of help available.

In this evidence-based workshop you will learn why sleep is so important to our well-being, how to assess clients for sleep quality and a number of evidence-based strategies to improve sleep.

You will learn…

Why is poor sleep related to anxiety, depression and suicide?

The teenage brain and the delayed sleep cycle.

Why is natural sunlight during the day so important for sleep?

Why racing thoughts are one of the leading causes of insomnia, and a number of strategies and techniques to help clients manage this.

How chronotherapy may be used after a traumatic event.

How to help people who have disrupted sleep because of technology.

The Dream Completion Technique to manage nightmares.

Understand physical sleep problems such as sleep apnoea and delayed sleep phase and when you need to refer to a medical doctor or specialist.

The workshop will be delivered by Michael Hempseed. Michael Hempseed is the author of the book Being A True Hero: Understanding and Preventing Suicide in Your Community.

Michael has spoken extensively throughout New Zealand to a wide and varied range of audiences, such as New Zealand Defence Force medics, doctors, social workers, businesses and many parents and teachers. In 2019 he delivered almost 200 seminars throughout NZ.

Although he speaks on “dark topics” the participants at his seminars say they walk away feeling inspired and hopeful and they even have a few laughs along the way. Many non-professionals come to his seminars and they say they learn a lot. But, professionals and experts in the field, such as medical doctors, psychologists and counsellors, also say they learn a lot and they are exposed to research they did not know about.

If this event is postponed we will rebook in person as soon as possible.

The volunteer tickets are intended for people such as FENZ volunteers, unpaid youth workers or other volunteers.
