Richmond Community Services Inc. and Windsor Professional Centre have partnered to offer a free two week ongoing workshop for dads looking to come to grips with the stresses in their lives.

Stress Management for Dads aims to provide participants with the tools to harness their responses to stressful and frustrating situations and in turn, wind down and start enjoying life.

Over the two sessions, the group will learn to strengthen their skills in: effective emotional regulation; challenging negative thoughts; and balancing demands of parenting, work and self care.

Evidence-based approaches to stress management will be applied.

The sessions will be held on Mondays, November 23 and 30, from 6.30pm to 9pm, at Richmond Neighbourhood Centre, 20 West Market Street, Richmond.

Free childcare will be available.

Bookings are essential and can be made by calling 4588 3502 or emailing admin@rsci.ngo.org.au
