|Biographical information related to the topic|
|I have presented papers at National and International conferences. My workshop is part of a series of workshops presented at previous EAPA-SA conferences. The focus is on supporting Practitioners and Professionals through self empowerment programmes which has been very well received in the past. As a pioneer in the field of EAP in the Public Service in South Africa, I am well versed on the challenges facing EAP’s nationally and internationally. my expertise extends to the several Boards that I serve on in different capacities.|
|Abstract for Conference Committee Consideration|
|Create your own life timeline. Write down all of your major goals that you feel you have achieved and want to achieve. In turn, write down the events in your life that have already happened and that have shaped or affected you. When life brings problems or misfortunes it shapes our belief system and makes us think differently, but it also makes us us. These things you list are organically you, not a simple reflection of society.
• This isn’t an exercise in wallowing. It’s about clarification and identification of issues. These issues might be keeping you from reaching your present potential and letting your true self blossom.
• Spend a little time clarifying the past in your timeline. A timeline is an incredibly objective method for marking down past occurrences in your life that you consider to be major. You can look at them as formation blocks and as changing experiences along your timeline without imbuing them with too much emotion (as would occur within a diary account). As if writing a résumé, keep it simple, real, and condensed to the major effects or lessons learned from each past incident.
Who I am is a journey of self discovery.
