Since the pandemic, helping professionals have experienced record levels of burnout, stress and compassion fatigue. While many trainings focus on self-care; this training focuses on exploring the concept of resilience. During this special event created to support our helping professionals, participants will have the opportunity to learn about their own individual resilience through various exercises. In addition, we will explore the definition and 4 categories of resilience. We will also review our ethical obligations as helping professionals to build our own resilience (around ethics of self-care and other critical principles), helping our clients with their resilience, warning signs that our tanks are low, and tips and tricks to fill them back up. Participants will be able to walk through creating their own plan to build resilience and will leave with free tools to use both professionally and personally.
