This training is designed to assist professionals working with foster youth to connect to stories of themselves within the work that are fulfilling and sustaining.  Because this work requires us to spend time in situations that tend to deplete us or contribute to ‘burnout’, it is vital that we are able to engage with versions of ourselves that demonstrate the ways that we stay connected to what we give value to. Participants will discuss some of the ideas that frame what stories are available to be told and to find ways to challenge these ideas in order to discover alternative stories. A particular story about a professional in the field will be shared as a possible way to invite stories that are sustaining of us.
