Gladney University Training

Presented by Gladney University via ZOOM


Self-care can be a charged term. We all need it, but taking time and resources to pursue self-care can bring its own stress. This leads to a problematic stuckness that is a road to burnout and compromising moments in our careers. As helping professionals, it is important for us to find realistic opportunities to replenish so that we can continue in the important work of healing. This workshop will present (and offer moments to practice) bite-size rituals for self-care, while helping helpers to anticipate and leave room for self-care in a grounded future.
