Sustaining Our Breath: Self-Care is the Oxygen
AUDIENCE: Child Welfare Professionals, Domestic Violence Advocates
Wednesday, September 4, 2019
10:00 – 11:30 a.m. CST
Anyone in a helping profession has heard the term “self-care” before. We are told that in order to help others, we have to help ourselves first. But, this is often easier said than done. Life is moving at such a fast pace that it can feel like we don’t have time to stop and take a breath. Taking time to care for ourselves can seem selfish. How can we make time for ourselves when those around us are in crisis? The idea of self-care can start to feel like another task added to our already-too-long To Do lists, but in reality self-care is the “oxygen” that will allow us to be at our best, in our professional and personal lives. This webinar will explore the different metaphors used to depict self-care; strategies and resources to fit self-care into our daily lives; and activities that can help us make self-care a priority.
As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Explain the impacts of vicarious trauma.
- Identify at least one self-care strategy they can apply to their professional life.
- Identify at least one self-care strategy they can apply to their personal life.
- Describe the components of a self-care plan.
- Practice at least one self-care activity.
