Here for our community!

Thank you Door Opener Academy & Skye Berger for engaging our community in this important topic: Work Life Blend: Renewal & Self-Care.

About our Community Partner & this Event:

The Work Life Blend program is developed as an invitation to learn the personal and professional implications of Secondary Trauma. The workshop will provide a practical self-care planning tool and strategies to implement necessary self-care practices. Beyond the ethical obligations of taking care of yourself, there is a cost to the investment we make into providing services. Exploring research and connecting to helping professionals, education and youth work practice, participants will design an immediately applicable self-care plan.

During this workshop, participants:

  • analyze information and research regarding burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma
  • learn skills such as recognizing their personal renewal style and indicators for implementation
  • develop a renewal and self-care plan with the intention of immediate application
