Come spend the day at Hast Creek Camp to be Refreshed and Revitalized

Covid crisis will be identified as a worldwide crisis that has resulted in many feeling burned out and even suffering from compassion fatigue. As mental health professionals and medical health caregivers we are held to a higher standard of managing our emotional well-being. This training will help participants first understand the effects of serving during a crisis, secondly each participant will identify where they fit on the spectrum of burnout/compassion fatigue. Finally, participants will learn and establish good self-care plans to continue serving the needs of those in their community.

  1. Participants will understand what a community crisis is and apply the operational definition to the Covid Pandemic. Participants will gain understanding as to how this worldwide crisis has led to many in crisis and even a trauma state. Gaining this understanding as to the worldwide crisis and how persons are affected, participants will be better prepared to continue to serve in a more informed state of mind.
  2. Participants will learn how serving during crisis events can affect caregivers and apply it to how serving in the Covid crisis has affected them. In addition, they will be able to better identify, since they recognize Covid pandemic as a crisis, the crisis state their community is in. In doing so they will be better equipped to address the needs of the community.
  3. Participants will learn the ethical responsibility of maintaining good self-care habits in the midst of serving during a crisis and apply it to how they approached their own self-care during the Covid crisis. Participants will learn the ethical importance of a solid self-care plan and will develop a twelve month self-care plan.
  4. Participants will learn the neuroscience behind trauma, trauma care and how toxic stress affects one brain health and body. Participants will learn to be brain wise therapists.
