Every person feels stress in unique ways and has differing methods of coping with the stress they feel. We often care for others while neglecting our own needs. In this course:
- You will learn that self-care is a deliberate choice, and begin to identify what causes stress at work, home, and even at play.
- You will have the opportunity to develop a personal plan to cope with your personal stressors and be encouraged to find a “safe person” to talk to.
- This session will include information on how to cope with the stress caused by the death of residents you have cared for.
