Prioritizing self-care is always a struggle when balancing the many tasks associated with being a caregiver. Yet, practicing self-care is key to staying emotionally fit. Art can be a helpful tool for self-care. In this six-hour workshop, participants will learn the definition of self-care and professional boundaries when providing care; examine differences between secondary traumatic stress, compassion fatigue, and burnout; and discuss excuses for not participating in self-care. This training will also examine possible outcomes when caregivers fail to prioritize self-care. In addition, participants will learn:

  • Prioritize self-care must be high on your to do list
  • Discuss the power and persuasion of modeling self-care for children and youth 
  • Discover how creativity in day-to-day activities can foster self-care as well as help heal trauma
  • Create art and identify ways to continue prioritizing self-care with art for yourself and children and youth in your care

Accommodations on the basis of disability are available by contacting Danielle Harbinger at (918) 660-3700 as soon as possible.
