“Training Summary: Setting boundaries is usually seen as a practice to secure one’s time, but boundaries are also essential for one’s personal well-being. Committing to the work of supporting system-involved youth can sometimes mean attempting to pour from an empty cup. Efforts to pause for wellness may conjure feelings of guilt or shame. This training contains didactic and interactive elements to walk providers through the process of establishing boundaries to avoid or reduce the risk of burnout, vicarious traumatization, compassion fatigue, and elevated risks of stress, and help improve outcomes for system-involved youth and families.
Participants will be able to:
-Learn how to recognize the onset and/or the pervasive nature of burnout and fatigue
-Discover and discuss what hinders wellness
-Develop boundaries to create space to practice wellness strategies
