Event description

Description

Working with children and their families is an intense and demanding job. It is necessary that professionals that work with this population understand the impact of work-related stress on their health and effectiveness of care as a professional. It is also necessary for professionals to have a range of self-care tools that can assist them with selecting a regular self-care practice.

This workshop will discuss the affects of stress and compassion fatigue on professionals that work wiith chidlren and families and explore the ways that various self-care techniques can help professionals stay centered, decrease stress, and prevent compassion fatigue and burnout.

The event will feature vendors that promote self care products and services ranging from massotherapy to essential oils.

This event will also provide two opportunities to get moving. All participants are welcome to join a Street Yoga session (yoga that can be done in a chair/office setting) and an introductory, low-impact Zumba session. Please dress comfortably. Those that are not interested in these sessions, are welcome to browse our vendors.
