Self-care and Embodied Awareness
preserving health, relationships, and your career
Burnout, Compassion Fatigue, and Secondary Traumatic Stress: common ailments in the health and social care professionals who have a high degree exposure to clients experiencing some form of psychological, medical, or social trauma and/or are trauma survivors themselves.

connect back to the source of inner guidance that you can trust — your body
develop self-awareness, self-regulation, and self-efficacy skills by honestly and confidently discern what’s happening with yourself in each moment
improve your communication and listening skills by taking personal responsibility for your perceptions, thoughts, beliefs, emotions and behaviours
So that you can more effectively support yourself and the people you work with.
To commit to self-care throughout your career is to value yourself, your relationships and your professional work.
A weekend for health and social care professionals to explore why self-care and embodied awareness matters for a long, effective and healthy career working with people.
