Supporting others at work can have a direct impact on our well-being, our lives and the lives of our loved ones. This workshop mixes content with reflection activities and experiential self care activities to explore and develop our own self care strategies. The presentation will include a discussion of stress, vicarious trauma, and burn-out as well as warning signs and strategies for mediating or preventing these issues. Mindfulness and self-compassion practices will be included.  A number of modalities will be used to present content including lecture, video, and group discussion.
