Methodology Get the participants to sit in a circle. T
Get the participants to sit in a circle. The facilitator should explain what is meant by 'self care' and the concept of holistic security – not just thinking about security online, but in all aspects of our lives. They could also touch on issues like the 'martyr complex' – thinking that the needs of an individual are far smaller than the greater cause. Ask the group if any of these problems sound familiar, and encourage the group to raise their hands and talk about their own experiences. Once a few experiences have been shared, move the discussion to think about strategies to deal with these kinds of problems. The facilitator could write down on a big flipchart some of the most popular strategies – such as looking after each other in groups, being aware of the pressure we put our colleagues under.
