Part 1 of 2 in the Pacific Southwest and Northeast & Caribbean MHTTC training series: Peer Wellness Supports for Healthcare Providers
Professionals across the health care continuum are trained to support, educate, and care for others. Sometimes this care comes at their own expense, and they may have difficulty tending to their own well-being. Burnout and compassion fatigue can lead to poor job performance which can negatively impact colleagues, patients/clients, and students, as well as family and friends. Attention to self-care and simple daily practices can build resilience and increase a person’s overall wellness.
This recorded training will help professionals in a range of disciplines and settings facilitate brief self-care sessions with their peers and colleagues. Part 1 of the training includes an overview of the program and self-care practices for participants.
The training is led by Drs. Margaret (Peggy) Swarbrick and Michelle Zechner and is based on their co-authored manual, "Self-Care in the Workplace."
