ABOUT THIS RESOURCE
Listen to the podcast on "Tending Our Tender Selves," the fifth session of Rebekah Demirel's series "We Make the Path by Walking" series. For many of us working in the fields of mental health services or teaching, we may notice that the very issues we help our clients with, are things we recognize in ourselves. Some of us didn’t learn how to care for ourselves because we weren’t adequately cared for in crucial stages of development. This session is focused on re-learning how to tend to ourselves with tender care. Find out more about her series here.
