A Bubble Bath and Glass of Wine Ain’t All That: Real Self-Care
4-22-21 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm. You are invited to stay on after the training for the South West Trauma Informed Care Collaborative Meeting from 3:30 pm - 4:00 pm.

If one more person shares a social media post about a bubble bath and glass of wine, well, let's just leave that here. During this training, you will learn to identify what self-care will really work for you. Maybe it is a bubble bath, but there are many options not typically discussed; connection within, to others or with all that is good. More than ever, now is the time we need self-care that works. Let's explore that together. This workshop assists professionals to clearly identify their personal indications of compassion fatigue, and to create their own self-care plan that specifically meets their needs for resilience.
1. Participants will be able to identify and understand our underlying self-care needs based on the Polyvagal Theory.
2. Participants will be able to utilize the information presented to understand their own needs for resilience.
3. Participants will create a self-care plan for themselves.
