There is a certain type of person who not only accepts the challenges of working in a high stress emotional environment but also excels despite the demands. Whether they are working with individuals who are experiencing trauma, grief, loss, illness or other stressful concerns the people whose role it is to help others in distress are often perceived as dedicated, hardworking, selfless and compassionate. Nevertheless, it is often those whose mission it is to help others who may be at increased risk of neglecting their own self-care. This training will raise awareness of the need to maintain appropriate self-care despite the demands of work and/or the pressures of home life. The course will offer specific tips to encourage self-care in order to maintain high level of functioning both personally and professionally.
