CURRENTLY, I AM OFFERING ALL TRAININGS ONLINE | WEBINARS | TELEHEALTH
The Coronavirus has forever changed our lives and work as we have known it. These are uncertain, frightening, and surreal times. We must wisely prepare for the long haul – as individuals as well as with each other.
Being socially conscious people we have a drive and dedication to try to be the best version of ourselves that we can be and to be active participants in making our world more just. Our current social-political climate may leave us feeling frightened, hopeless, triggered, fatigued, and isolated.
Simultaneously, it also has galvanized and inspired connection, resistance and action in thousands of people across our state, the country and around the globe.
An essential ingredient to keepin’ on with making personal and community change is meaningful healthy connection – with ourselves and with like-minded others.
I am excited to offer professional trainings and workshops that are designed specifically with the goal of maximizing socially-conscious inter-personal and professional growth and wellness.
These specific COVID-19 educational-support groups include: Self-Care During COVID-19 and Beyond for Helping and Medical Providers. and Use Your Words and Colors: A COVID-19 Resiliency & Trauma-Informed Creative Expression Support Group for LGBTQAI+ Health and Wellness Professionals
Topics include: vicarious trauma, oppression fatigue, moral injury, compassion fatigue and burnout; white-body privilege and being an active anti-racism ally; political trauma stress; and community care and personal self-care; and LGBTQ+ issues.
Continue to be the strong, self-aware and compassionate humans that you are. It takes us all…one at a time.
Take good care,
