Contact us at [email protected]
These four 75-minute sessions are part of our Vitality for Behavioral Health Care Supervisors and Leadership live learning community for Region 10 with Dr. Kira Mauseth. Region 10 supervisors/leaders were notified of this opportunity via a digital mailing.
ABOUT THE LEARNING COMMUNITY
This learning community will take us through a conversation with each other about the ways in which we can reclaim our connection to the work we love so much as the pandemic enters its third year. It has become necessary to shift our focus from disaster management to recovery, reengagement and finding a sense of vitality. Starting with a discussion about what we need as individuals to recover from the collective losses we have been through, we will also explore such topics as acknowledging and processing through compassion fatigue, personal symptom management and active behavioral health supports we can engage and identifying motivators and a renewed sense of purpose as our work continues.
- Develop awareness of the influences of collective grief and loss on our experiences as providers.
- Recognize the signs and symptoms of compassion fatigue and engage supports as needed.
- Reliably apply evidence-based simple active coping techniques.
- Re-orient towards a renewed sense of purpose through the identification of personal influences on vitality.
- Supervisors/leaders in behavioral health working in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, or Washington state (HHS Region 10).
