Who is Caring for You? Self Care in an Age of COVID-19 with Sue Badeau
April 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm CDT
The National Family Support Technical Assistance Center (NFSTAC)
In the mental health field, whether as parents, caregivers, professionals, or community advocates, we must address a wide array of child and family needs while following agency regulations, policies, and paperwork. In recent times, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, increased racial unrest, and frequent natural disasters, we are finding that we must do this and more without our usual resources, tools, or approaches. Meanwhile, we are faced with our own emotions – grief, loss anger, confusion, frustration – and the very real impact of secondary trauma. How do we cope with this mix of emotions while also doing our job?
This webinar will help participants understand, express, and cope with their emotions and create a self-care plan to develop resilience in the face of uncertainty and circumstances that change daily.
