Studies suggest that social service work can be very stressful, and that not addressing these stressors can impact service delivery. This often translates to high turnover rates and programs having to invest in resources to train new staff. This training acknowledges the level of stress in this field and uses the same strengths staff use in their daily work to engage in a series of dialogues about personal self-care and organizational issues that often go unaddressed. The training also explores common sources of stress and provides strategies for managing and lowering stress levels. Discussions focus on acknowledging and addressing issues of burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma. A special emphasis is placed on self-care for staff.
Attendees will be offered information to support a renewed sense of purpose and will be better equipped to manage their stress.
