Lorien Carter, MSW
Professor of the Practice, Brown School
Preferred registration deadline: January 26th
This workshop will be conducted in a virtual Zoom meeting format.
Self-care refers to the practice of identifying and enacting strategies that help someone to enhance their holistic well-being. Those in helping professions are at increased risk for experiencing compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, and eventually decreased job satisfaction and burnout. Intentional and consistently implemented self-care practices can buffer these risks.
This highly interactive virtual workshop will introduce participants to various evidence-based strategies for practicing self-care including mindfulness meditation, gratitude journaling, physical movement, and coloring. Workplaces that offer holistic well-being support are more likely to have employees who contribute positively and report lower burnout rates and higher job satisfaction. We will also discuss organizational wellness practices that agencies can use to create or strengthen employee well-being plans.
