Promoting Positive Well-Being and Self-Care through Healing Centered Relationship-Based Practices
Date & Time Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018 - 8:30 – 11:30 AM AND 1:00 – 4:00 PM
Presenters Maria Gehl, Christy Stanton
Abstract Through relationship-based practices, we strive to empower and support families and young children in succeeding in their life goals. Unfortunately, and far too frequently, the families and children we support are experiencing many adversities. To address and support their needs, we incorporate strategies that promote healing from these experiences and in doing so, may often prioritize the needs of others over our own. We also cope with high caseloads, lots of required paperwork, and little time to accomplish all we need to do. This situation results in feelings of being overwhelmed and undervalued. During this session, we will pause together and consider how employing self-care strategies that promote our own well-being can promote the well-being of the children and families we work with. Join your colleagues and the presenters in this interactive and practical conference session to consider a strength-based perspective on healing centered engagement.
