Masterful Self-Care for Educators
Thursday, June 23, 1 to 4 pm in the Interpretive Center
In the complexity of life, it is difficult to know how to care for ourselves, or what the balance of care between ourselves and others (our families, our students) ought to be. When this balance is tilted, more toward caring for others (as it often is for teachers) we can experience fatigue and resentment. And, when we take time for ourselves, we often feel we are neglecting other relationships and responsibilities that need our attention. This workshop looks carefully at these questions of balance and addresses how to best support and nourish ourselves while attending to the responsibilities and obligations we carry. We will briefly examine how older models of self-care and begin working through a more complex model of self-care which integrates evidence-based research about what increases self-respect and confidence, and how to set and maintain healthy boundaries. Facilitated by Michele Rusinko.
