Caring for the Caregiver: Evidence-Based Practices to Reduce Stress & Burnout

Recent studies indicate that burnout and compassion fatigue are on the rise among clinicians, clinical staff and family caregivers. While there are multiple factors contributing to this, studies show that simple, evidence-based practices can help to mitigate the effects of stress and bring a greater sense of balance and joy without adding more to the task list. 

In this one hour, interactive workshop, caregivers will learn about and experience simple self-care tips and techniques from three well-researched practices: gratitude, mindfulness, and self-compassion. Soothing self-care supplies will also be provided.
