Reading for Wellbeing
This short course of 10 hours will be delivered 1 day a week for four weeks. Each session will include a short story, or an extract from a book, plus a poem. The session will take place via Zoom, and participants will be encouraged to answer questions within the group to explore the various themes raised in the texts. There is no reading required between sessions.
The aims of the course are:
- To encourage reading group participants to connect with each other and express thoughts and opinions on the reading material.
- To encourage participants to reflect on everyday wellbeing themes through the content of the stories and poems selected for the sessions and the suggested discussion questions that accompany them.
- To encourage further reading of or listening to stories/poems.
