Women Gender & Social Justice Studies
Meaning and Personal Development
This was an excellent course. It was based on the work of Viktor Frankl – Meaning and Personal Development. It was delivered by Terry Kelleher who is so knowledgeable and is such a great communicator. The story was based on his experiences as a prisoner in the Nazi concentration camps.
At the start of the course I wondered what the connection was between this and our own lives. When we progressed more into the story it became a lot clearer, it was about survival in difficult times. This course happened at the right time, as it was all about coping with our mental health, and the choices we make in our lives. If we have hope in our lives we can face the difficult decisions that we may have to make. Living in this present lockdown situation, I find that we are relying on hope and survival all the more. It was great meeting up every week and gave me something to look forward to.
I would also like to thank Anca and the CDETB for providing us with the laptops so that we could do this course remotely. Community education is so important to people so that they can feel included and everyone who wants to should be able to avail of that opportunity.
