Helping Professionals: How’s your self-care? Here’s something just for you.

Join us on Zoom on Mondays from 12:30—1:00 p.m. for Self-Care Checkup for Helping Professionals. You must register for each date individually to have the access link sent to you. (This is for security, so we don’t have surprise live attendees with ill intent.) The calls are recorded and sent to all registrants. So, if you can’t make it at that time, please register anyway to have the recording and related information sent to you. Each week we practice at least one self-care exercise together, and have an interactive discussion with a special guest. This is for any helping professional, whether you are on the frontlines of managing the COVID-19 pandemic or helping people in other ways, such as school nurse, educator, counselor, etc. Please share this with your colleagues who may wish to join us. REGISTER for each of our checkup calls individually. Here are the next Zoom call, and the recordings of the first three.
