Caring for the Helper: Ways of Managing Stress and Overwhelm

Presenter: Ana Rodriguez- Bentancourt, PhD 

We have been in a period of prolonged stress over the past two years and many of us are feeling overwhelmed. Self-care and community care are critical to our well-being, particularly as helpers. Come learn about stress, vicarious trauma and overwhelm; what they are, what factors contribute to them, and what we can do to cope. This workshop will offer a reflective space for you to consider what you have been carrying and help you find manageable and realistic ways to cope.
