Self-Care – Not Just Scented Candles
The work that we do in the community services sector is often challenging and stressful, and is undertaken in the context of tight budgets and staffing levels. This leads to high levels of stress and burn out in our workers.
Self-care is not just a nice idea – it is an essential to reduce staff turnover and promote positive outcomes for clients.
In this workshop we will think about:
- What does work/life balance really mean and how does it contribute to wellbeing?
- How to maintain a base level of health and wellbeing?
- How to manage crisis points and traumatic situations?
- What a realistic self-care plan looks like for you?
