Preventing Caregiver Burnout with Self-Compassion Training
Sat, April 22, 2017, 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM PDT
A Skills Training Program designed to help manage front-line stress and prevent burnout
Providing care to those who are suffering or struggling is what we do. Exercise, yoga and eating well are some of the ways we may try to care for ourselves, when we can. But this can often feel like added pressure – and is often impossible while on the job.
There is another way that increasing research is showing can help us prevent burnout, manage vicarious trauma and build resiliency – even in the midst of overwhelming situations.
This one day workshop will provide you with the science, research and practices of mindfulness and self-compassion. You will learn how to include yourself in your circle of compassion - how to cultivate sustainable compassion. You will learn skills you can begin to use immediately to support yourself emotionally.
