Trainings and Workshops for Socially Conscious Humans
Dear Lovely Humans:
Being socially conscious people we have a drive and dedication to actively care about each other and to try to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. However, our current social-political climate can leave us feeling frightened, hopeless, triggered, fatigued, and isolated.
An essential antidote to keepin’ on with making personal and community change is maintaining meaningful connection – with ourselves and with like-minded others.
I am excited to offer workshops and professional trainings that are designed specifically with the goal of maximizing personal, professional and inter-personal growth and connection.
The uniquely small group workshop format provides the opportunity for learning together through deeper discussion, interaction and personal reflection. The shared experience of discovering, skill-sharing and opening-up in a safe and accepting setting results in sustainable personal growth that blossoms outward to our professional and personal relationships and communities.
Continue to be more of the person who you want to be in the world. After all, it is what will ultimately give us all justice and then, peace.
Take good care,

Minimizing Burnout, Compassion Fatigue and Political Trauma Stress for Socially Conscious Helping Professionals: Sustainable Wellness & Self-Care
Helping others through their stress, pain, trauma and suffering is central to much of the work that we helping professionals provide. This makes burnout, vicarious trauma, compassion and empathy fatigue all too common "occupational hazards". Additionally, as socially conscious helpers, doing this challenging work, while also existing within these current social-political realities, further increases our propensity for oppression fatigue.
It is imperative that we white "progressive" and "liberal" helping professionals move beyond difficult conversations and into meaningful systematic action. What does actively working for Racial Justice mean in our professional and personal lives? ~ Identify common race dynamic questions, worries, and issues that we may have, situations we have come across, and the mistakes that we white helpers often make when helping People of Color.
~We will discuss the topics of White Privilege, White Feminism, White Liberalism, White Fragility, Cultural Appropriation, White Savior Complex, Intersectionality, Reparations - and how these concepts influence ourselves, our work as helping professionals, and how we will address them.
