ABOUT THIS COURSE:
As peer and family support professionals, our job is to support people as they find their path to recovery and build their resilience. Sometimes we see wonderful transformations, but other times we see ongoing and devastating consequences of mental illness and substance use disorder. We know that caring for others has a high cost. This immersive course takes a deep dive into the prevention of personal and professional stress, compassion fatigue, burnout, and secondary traumatic stress. We will identify the shortcomings of incomplete self-care models and gain the knowledge and skills to build resiliency in our personal and professional lives.
