Self Care

Saturday 21 May 2016

10am – 12 pm

Are you a caregiver or helping professional who is looking for more balance in life?

Or perhaps you are a parent or teacher who gets stressed with daily demands?

The truth is many helping professionals can experience work-related stress if they neglect to take care of themselves. This may include feeling exhausted, tense or easily irritated.

That’s why paying attention to self-care is important for looking after yourself, and others. Once you nurture yourself, you will be able to provide care to others in a more sustainable way. Self-care is a personal journey, and involves understanding what strategies work for you to find resilience and vitality in different circumstances.

In this workshop you will discover:

What qualities and skills make helping professionals effective in their work?

What are the stress factors that can affect people in the helping professions?

What is Compassion fatigue – and is it real?

Self-Care strategies to help helpers remain robust and resilient.

These topics will be addressed by Megan Thorpe, an experienced professional who has worked in health, welfare and education sectors.

Cost: $30
