Restorative self-care for sustainable practice
In this workshop, participants will learn how to personalize self-care practices, and to distinguish between restorative and performative self-care. We’ll learn to identify ‘stress cycles’ in our personal and professional lives, and examine the link between these cycles and burnout. With reference to self-compassion and boundary practice, we’ll do a deep dive into the real work of caring for ourselves when our job is to care for others.
