Are you overwhelmed by floods, fires, mass shootings and reports of protest and violence throughout our country and the world? Is the suffering and traumas your clients experience overwhelming you? Do you want to hide under the covers, escape into fantasy or are you checking and re-checking your Facebook feed and the news? It’s time to look at the strategies you are using to manage stress, natural disaster, violent news, vicarious traumatization and personal trauma. Develop a plan for daily self-care that helps you stay focused on your work, make time for friends and family, engage in volunteer activities and have FUN. We will do a self-assessment, develop a self-care plan and learn simple techniques for regulating stress.
