Self Care


July 13, 2021, 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. CDT

Self care is a hot topic, especially in the world of helping professions and parenting. But how do you actually do it? Lindsay will give a brief background on the deeper impact of self care, then guide participants through identifying what strategies will be effective for you personally, and developing an actionable self care plan that you can apply that same day. If you know you need to care for yourself but feel lost or overwhelmed on how and where to get started, this is the training for you.
